The 2016 Global Infrastructure Report identifies technology, 100 strategic projects as keys to growth

A report released by CG/LA Infrastructure has identified 100 strategic projects and the industry trends needed to propel them to drive global economic growth in 2016.

CG/LA Infrastructure’s 2016 Strategic 100 Global Infrastructure Report highlights the need for a new development paradigm for global infrastructure, citing the current budget, decision-making and project pipeline “gaps” as clear symptoms of a broken model. The report lays out a plan that highlights three critical areas of focus: new technology innovation as a driver of smart infrastructure, the recalibration of risk by bringing users into all areas of decision-making and the revitalization of the public sector’s role as a non-partisan driver of long-term economic growth.

“There is a great, pent-up demand for infrastructure and a global recognition that our failure of imagination is prolonging poor economic performance around the world,” said CG/LA Infrastructure President and CEO Norman Anderson. “Our challenge as an industry is to advocate creatively, energetically and effectively to double the world’s investment in priority infrastructure, driving growth and opportunity and putting savings to long-term, productive use.” 

The 2016 Strategic 100 Global Infrastructure Report lists projects from 67 countries, recognized because of their potential contribution to job creation, economic growth, regional competitiveness and innovative use of sustainable design. The top six countries, ranked in order of total project value, are the United Kingdom ($57.7 billion), United States ($40.6 billion), China ($39.5 billion), Vietnam ($38 billion), Japan ($37.5 billion) and Indonesia ($31.2 billion).  

CG/LA’s upcoming 9th Global Infrastructure Leadership Forum on March 9 to 11, 2016, in Washington, D.C., is a highly selective gathering of the owner-operators of the Strategic 100 projects, presenting to more than 500 C-Suite executives representing technology firms, engineering and construction principals and investors from throughout the investment value chain. Pre-registration for the event ends Friday, January 8. View the complete agenda here.
