East Euro Link is proud to present its 3rd Annual Transport Conference, entitled Financing CEE Transport Infrastructure. Following the previously successful events staged in Eastern Europe, this year’s conference will seek to encourage new investment into the sector, aided by its location in London. This will be a tremendous opportunity for current and potential investors to enhance their understanding of CEE Transport Infrastructure and the best investment strategies to pursue. Simultaneously, transport operators, construction companies, government officials, investment advisors and consultancies will have the opportunity to expand their business networks.

There is a constant need for investment in Transport Infrastructure in Central and Eastern Europe, and in recent years the drive towards Public Private Partnerships in particular has taken precedence. Yet the scope for private investment and the levels of success have varied between different regions, with significant public funding in the EU contrasting to different finance models in the CIS region. This conference will analyse and identify trends, strategies and profitable areas for investment in the sector, drawing upon recent case studies and initiatives.

The strong line up of speakers will be divided into three sections, highlighting the methods and opportunities for private investment, followed by an analysis of finance requirements and openings in road, rail and airport infrastructure, and a special focus on the emerging CIS region. Finally, there will be an overview of public and state finance in the industry and legal guidelines for private investors involved in CEE. There will also be a panel discussion on Identifying Profitable Investment Opportunities, and the chance to ask questions and network with key players in the industry.
