Fostering Infrastructure Investment in the MENA Region: Mitigating Risk in Uncertain Times

 

 

9 December 2013 - Paris, France

 

Infrastructure is a key element of the business environment and a generator of employment. Increasing demand for infrastructure in the MENA region is obstructed by declining private investment in major projects due to global economic conditions and political uncertainty in some parts of the region.

 

Objectives

The Conference on Fostering Infrastructure Investment in the MENA Region: Mitigating Risk in Uncertain Times addressed the facilitation of the private sector decision to invest in infrastructure projects in the MENA region, including under public-private partnerships. Discussions focused in particular on ways to expand the use of existing guarantees and risk-sharing mechanisms.


The Conference also formally launched the MENA-OECD Working Group on Investment Security in the Mediterranean (ISMED).
