The publication focuses on the continuing challenges governments face in bringing projects to the market.
There is an emerging consensus from the general public that more money needs to be spent on infrastructure, although people are still reluctant to dig into their pockets to pay for it through user fees or other taxes. However, the most important challenge for 2014 and beyond, is taking the critical next step and improving the flow of projects from a robust pipeline of development into procurement, construction and ultimately operations, when the benefits will be felt.
In this newsletter, four of KPMG’s Global Infrastructure leaders (Nick Chism, James Stewart, Julian Vella and Stephen Beatty) reflect on their 2013 predictions and outline some additional trends that are expected to change the way infrastructure will be delivered over the next five years.
