This is the leading event on PPP financing models in the US infrastructure sector
The head of ACCIONA Infrastructure in the USA, Luis Palazzi, took part in the InfraAmericas. Infrastructure Forum 2017 held in New York on 13 and 14 June.
This event, now celebrating its 13th year, is the most important in the USA in the Public Private Partnership (P3) infrastructure sector. It brings together representatives from the leading infrastructure companies that operate in the USA as well as investors and public officials from both state and federal administrations.
During the forum, Luis Palazzi took part in the panel entitled “State transportation P3s cruise to continual growth”, which examined the opportunities arising in the transport and water sectors.
The panellists focused on issues such as the incentives being proposed by the new Trump administration to attract private investment and the involvement of US States in infrastructure projects using the PPP format.
In 2016, the USA became the largest market for greenfield and brownfield projects and refinancing agreements using PPP formats, worth an estimated $11 billion. This was the context in which members of the panel discussed how transport projects would be carried out under this format in this new political scenario and how this model could also be extended to other infrastructure projects.
