Latin America is a long way from investing the amounts that multilateral organizations say are needed to close the infrastructure gap that limits the region's competitiveness. However, in 2014, there will be new business opportunities for global and regional players as a result of the various infrastructure programs launched in countries like Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Chile. The local capital markets and particularly the pension funds are expected to see much greater participation in these projects.
INCLUDED IN THIS MONTH' EDITION:
Latin America should invest the equivalent of 5% to 7% of regional GDP per year in order to reduce the infrastructure gap. At present these investments are no more than 3% of GDP.
PPPs move forward
Brazil and Mexico alone account for 65% of public-private partnership (PPP) investment in the region, with this figure rising to more than 80% with the addition of Colombia, Peru and Chile.
Appetite of a giant
Brazil is seeking international investors for its portfolio of infrastructure concessions worth some US$240 billion. In railways alone, the projects involve spending of US$39.6 billion.
