The geo-economics of large-scale infrastructure projects
16 June 2016

The abundance of natural resources and the build-out of infrastructure to access them create key competitive advantages for countries and regions. Those economies that have developed the most economical and effective means of managing critical resources have flourished, but the presence of resources and a fortuitous geographical location are the bare minimum requirement for sustainable development. What might be the impact of new major infrastructure projects on the global economy? What are the geopolitical risks associated with major cross-border infrastructure projects and how can these best be mitigated? What role can governments play in attracting private investment to these projects?
