Insuring Infrastructure Projects' event

16 February 2012

Brazil is increasingly playing a key role in the global economy but continues to be hampered by its unsatisfactory infrastructure.

Upgrading this infrastructure is a key element of the Brazilian Government's ambitious Growth Acceleration Programme (PAC).

Greater private investment in Brazil also needs to be secured. Robust insurance protection for public and private interests is a key driver to viability of such projects.

The 'Insuring Infrastructure Project' event looked at some key aspects of such programmes benchmarked against international practice.
