Inaugural Session: Bringing Private Sector into Infra Spending

From a high of over 5.5% of GDP, the share of private sector investment in infrastructure projects in India has dipped to about 3%, less than even the range seen in the early years of 2000. This worrisome pattern is however in sync with global indicators too at a time when most countries are keen to push ahead with additional spending to cure their infra shortages. What innovations need to be brought in at this stage?

Plenary I: Key Risks for Infra Spending

For the private sector an assessment of the risks that infra sector projects bring is crucial to decide on financing them. These risks include sponsoring risks, regulatory risks and market risks. These risks determine the pay offs that private companies will want to negotiate before contracting any projects.

What has been the experience of the private sector in India to understand the risks and what do they portend going forward

Plenary II : Bringing Sovereign Funds & Multilateral Institutions into the Game

Other than the private sector, the major source of infra financing are the government and the sovereign funds. To bring out the best from them, the role of multilateral institutions become critical. As countries take on larger projects the presence of multilateral institutions also provide cross border technological support and the assurance of political stability that will assuage the demands of competing stake holders in those projects.

Plenary III: Regulatory Challenges for Domestic and Cross border


Infrastructure projects are not only becoming larger in scope, they are also spreading to sectors and regions that have governance issues. To make the private sector deploy money in the sector, it is essential then to enhance the competency of the regulators. Projects must satisfy climate and social concerns adequately as well as keep the costs of building those projects reasonable, for all of which a keen regulatory oversight is essential.

The Final Word: Risk-reward Ratio for Private Sector

India is home to the second largest basket of private- public partnership projects in the world. There has been a world of experience with these projects across sectors and over time. Parsing through the risks, the support provided by the government and multilateral institutions and the regulatory oversight provides a huge lesson for going forward as the next round of infrastructure projects beckon. Different models are already coming up to answer the specific question. Which models will adequately meet the risks yet proving adequate rewards to the private sector to tap financial institutions and capital markets again?
