PRESS RELEASE – Santiago, November 5TH , 2015
The governments of the most important economies in Latin America are scrambling to balance their budgets as the year winds to a close, especially given that national revenue is deeply impacted by the drop in the prices of major commodities such as copper and oil.
Moreover, governments face the need to maintain spending in infrastructure as a means to ensure unemployment remains in check, and so as to not lose competitiveness. Regardless, whether due to such countercyclical policies, or due the genuine need to continue to close the infrastructure gap, in 2016 and in the years that follow there will be a flood of investment in the region’s infrastructure.
Multibillion-dollar projects include highways, ports and airports. In 2016 there will also be large investments in ambitious rail projects, logistics corridors and latest-generation mass transit systems, such as new subway lines, light rail systems, monorails and cable cars.
The BNamericas report describes new institutions Chile is developing to revitalize its pioneering concessions system, what Brazil is doing to rise from the lethargy of the scandalous Lava Jato scheme, as well as the new mechanisms Colombia has introduced to drive the enormous needs of its 4G highway program.
The Outlook includes tables with the largest projects in the region, graphs with the most salient infrastructure statistics, and goes into the problems faced by some of the largest Brazilian construction companies that might open up opportunities for new players throughout Latin America.
