The World Economic Forum has just launched the report, “Paving the Way: Maximizing the Value of Private Finance in Infrastructure.” Due to the economic crisis governments cannot meet ballooning infrastructure investment needs while still cutting costs. The study claims that a major part of the solution lies in increasing private sector investment to meet the funding gap.

The report provides a common reference point for what considerations are important to private capital providers and how the public sector can develop its capacity to address them. The study is the result of a year-long multitaskholder collaboration between the World Economic Forum, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Industry Partners of the World Economic Forum.

The report is available online.
