CAN YOU PINPOINT THE NEXT ASIAN HOTSPOT FOR INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENT?
It is undeniable that Asia’s infrastructure needs are enormous. Whilst Asian economies are riding on an all-time high, the rate at which infrastructure development is keeping up is far lagging behind. Governments, faced with a mounting pressure to sustain and finance infrastructure developments, are left with little choice but to increasingly turn to the private sector for financing inputs via public private partnerships and key strategic alliances. Yet, due to the presence of sovereign and credit risks in Asia, both banks and investors are also adopting an extremely cautious attitude towards lending long-term for infrastructure projects.
