The infrastructure gap in developing countries is estimated to be US$57 trillion (2013-2030), with US$9 trillion of this in Asia alone. Previous development funding models have been unable to address this gap and governments are increasingly looking to partner with the private sector to find new solutions. Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) offer an innovative way to create the conditions necessary to attract private capital to much needed infrastructure development projects.
Mr Allard Nooy is the CEO of InfraCo Asia Development. He has over 25 years’ of strategic executive leadership experience in the infrastructure sector and is an expert on emerging markets and PPPs. As CEO of InfraCo Asia Development, a Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG) company, he manages an innovative quasi-private sector company designed to attract private capital to finance and bring to close infrastructure projects in South and South East Asia.
In this presentation, Allard highlighted the role of PPPs in infrastructure in developing countries and discussed the benefits and challenges of PPPs in infrastructure development, Australia’s involvement in the sector, and what the future looks like for PPPs in our region.
This public seminar was presented by the Development Policy Centre at Crawford School of Public Policy, The Australian National University.
