IPFA Webinar: Opportunities and Challenges for Infrastructure Projects in Central and Eastern Europe
January 24, 2018
Webinar Recording from 24 January 2018
Thanks to forecasts for continued economic growth across the region, combined with the need for greater unity and economic participation within the EU and global economic structures, Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) may be seen as an attractive market for infrastructure investors.
CEE is expected to outperform Western Europe over the next five years, with an average annualized construction market growth of 3.1% compared with 2.3% in Western Europe, according to BMI Research.
This creates an attractive story for private investors. However, as an emerging region, one of the major barriers to financing the necessary infrastructure across CEE is its perception as relatively risky, particularly compared with North America, Western Europe and Asia. Although investor interest continues, they are increasingly looking for well-prepared projects with a balanced risk-reward profile.
