Infrastructure Construction in the World
With the industrialization and urbanization worldwide, the infrastructure has been developing a crucial influence on and yet has become the bottleneck for the development of a city, due to the lack of capital and input channels. A comparative study on the traditional investment and financing patterns with the newly emerged PFI (Private Finance Initiative) and PPP (Public-Private Partnerships) as well as other applications may provide reference for the resolving of the above-mentioned problems.Morgan Stanley estimates that, in the next 10 years, the total infrastructure construction investment in 29 emerging countries worldwide may rise up to 27.1 trillion U.S. Dollars with 67% in Asia . The World Bank also has the prediction that 20-plus countries in APAC will allocate 165 billion U.S. Dollars into infrastructure construction, showing that the infrastructure construction in Asia will step into a high-speed growth. The great advancement of such infrastructure construction as water conservancy, electric power, communications and transportation, etc. has greatly promoted the urbanization and industrialization of Asian countries. In addition, European countries have started to change their old infrastructure completed dozens of years ago. Therefore, only after an analysis into and an overall arrangement of overseas markets, can the investors find the opportunities across the world and at the same time, diversify the relevant risks.
