Abstract

Mobilising private sector financing for infrastructure is a key priority for developing countries worldwide, in order to provide critical physical and social infrastructure for economic development. The G-20 Presidency in 2018 has identified that the global infrastructure gap between 2018 and 2035 is estimated to be around USD 5.5 trillion, while the pool of assets under management by institutional investors globally is estimated at USD 80 trillion. Catalysing greater private capital flows for financing infrastructure is therefore one of the key challenges facing developing countries.
