CG/LA Infrastructure Inc. released the 2015 Strategic Top 100 Global Infrastructure Report, an assessment of the 100 projects critical to revitalizing economic competitiveness and opportunity creation around the globe. This 8th annual edition also features a special section on the Strategic 25 infrastructure projects in the U.S. The projects on the Strategic Top 100 Global list, all of which are scheduled to go forward in the next three to 18 months, are collectively valued at more than $400 billion, representing 47 countries and 10 infrastructure sectors, including urban mass transit, highways and bridges, and water and wastewater.
"The Strategic Top 100 list identifies those projects that in 2015 will make a difference in terms of country growth, and global growth, creating millions of opportunities for people around the world," said Norman F. Anderson, president and CEO of CG/LA Infrastructure. "As a global community we have to make sure that these projects go forward—and that's why we've invited the sponsors of these projects to present at the 8th Annual Global Infrastructure Leadership Forum."
The Strategic Top 100 Global is the cornerstone on which the 8th Global Infrastructure Leadership Forum is built. All projects included on the Strategic Top 100 Global are invited to attend and present at this infrastructure marketplace scheduled for Feb. 25 to 27, 2015 in New York City. Inspired by the opening keynote given at CG/LA's North American Infrastructure Forum by the Vice President of the United States, The Honorable Joe Biden, the theme of the 8th Global Forum is "Build, Build, Build: Generating Global Economic Growth."
CG/LA's region-specific forums convene four times annually, each time bringing together a community of more than 500 industry executives from all aspects of an infrastructure project lifecycle—including financial lenders and investors, law, design, engineering and construction firms, and owner operators—to focus on specific projects.
