This timely event will give Australian business an unprecedented opportunity to learn about the extensive pipeline of infrastructure projects planned for key markets in Latin America and the opportunities that they offer to Australian business.
Australia’s expertise in the field of infrastructure is well-known and therefore eagerly sought in the region. So far, only a handful of Australian companies have participated in the development of the region’s infrastructure, but the potential is there for many more companies to become involved and to benefit from the building of the region’s infrastructure.
Through comprehensive presentations, panel discussions and individual meetings, Forum delegates will have the opportunity to learn about:
- the current economic status of the major markets in Latin America
- the critical role that infrastructure development will play in underpinning productivity growth and the increased competitiveness of these markets
- the pipeline of projects on offer in each market and strategies for accessing them
- the issues that need to be taken into account when investing in or participating in projects in the region.
The Forum will also offer delegates from Latin America an opportunity to connect with key players in Australia’s infrastructure sector, one where Australia is seen as a global leader, with a strong track record of deals and highly knowledgeable participants. It is being held at a time when “Australian savings are having to go offshore to look for infrastructure investments. And Australian fund managers are selling their infrastructure deal-doing and investment expertise offshore”.
This important Forum is an initiative of the Australia-Latin America Business Council and has the backing of the Government of Victoria and the Australian Government’s Council on Australia Latin America Relations, as well as key government agencies from Australia and the major markets in Latin America, and important private sector companies and institutions.
