Investment in emerging markets has the potential to foster the growth and development of emerging economies, provide much needed capital and expertise in a variety of infrastructure arenas, and to promote increased cooperation and collaboration between countries and between public and private parties. Given the political risks and varying degrees of sophistication in emerging markets, the Symposium seeks to answer: (1) what is and what creates a ripe investment environment? and (2) what makes a transaction financeable? Through greater understanding of current challenges and proposed solutions, the Symposium hopes to inspire strategies for wise and sustainable investments in infrastructure development.
