A one day workshop in London will highlight the business community’s priorities for raising private funding for infrastructure and contribute to the ideas being forwarded by the B20 Investment and Infrastructure taskforce ahead of the G20 summit later this year.

The workshop, organised by the EBRD and Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), will bring together institutional investors, capital market specialists and international infrastructure companies to trade ideas on how to mobilise private funding for badly needed investments in a sector that could help boost world economic growth.

Infrastructure is a high-cost sector covering transport, communications, energy, water, and other essential services. Its long-term funding needs are far greater than what governments alone can provide, especially at a time of constrained budgets.

Participants are expected to focus on the role that capital markets could play in raising the necessary funds, as well as explore alternative sources of infrastructure financing so as to develop practical recommendations, reflecting the needs and priorities of the private sector.

Members of the press are invited to a joint media briefing at 13:00pm on the results of the workshop by Kirill Dmitriev, CEO of the RDIF sovereign wealth fund, who heads the B20’s Investment and Infrastructure task force, and the EBRD’s Managing Director for Infrastructure, Thomas Maier.
