9th South America Infrastructure & Energy Summit
08 September 2015Bogotá
A wave of new infrastructure projects is being launched in several of the region’s countries. This push is underpinned by the governments’ need to implement countercyclical strategies to face an economic slowdown, with special emphasis on infrastructure projects as drivers of economic activity and employment. Additionally, the increasing air transport demand is putting pressure on existing infrastructure, while the region’s ports need to become more competitive in light of the Panama Canal expansion project.
