Private Investment in Large Transport Projects Increases during the First Semester of 2011, Concentrated in India and the Road Sector(World Bank, Washington, DC, 2012-01) Nicholas, AlexanderIn the first semester of 2011, 34 new transport projects with private participation reached financial or contractual closure in nine low- and middle-income countries, involving investment commitments (hereafter investments) of US$17 billion.1 Investment in the first semester of 2011 increased by 17 percent compared with the first semester of 2010, on par with pre-crisis levels in the first semester of 2008. By number of projects, activity in 2011 decreased by 31 percent compared with the first semester of 2010 indicating fewer, larger projects in middle income countries. As in recent periods, private investment continued to concentrate in India and the road sector globally. India attracted 70 percent of private investment in transport and implemented 65 percent of transport projects with private participation. Globally, there were 23 road projects involving investment of US$8.7 billion. Railroads attracted the second highest investment level with US$6.1 billion invested in three large metro transit projects. Five port projects reached financial closure with investments of US$1.4 billion, and three airport projects attracted investments of US$360 million.
For Fifth Consecutive Year India Drove Private Activity in Infrastructure in South Asia to a New Peak in 2010(Washington, DC, 2011-08) World BankIn 2010, 102 infrastructure projects with private participation reached financial or contractual closing in 4 low- and middle-income countries in South Asia, involving investment commitments of US$47 billion. Infrastructure projects implemented in the 1990-2009 period attracted new investment of US$26.5 billion, bringing total investment commitments (hereafter, investment) to infrastructure sectors to US$73.5 billion in 2010. The activity in 2010 represents an increase of 72 percent by investment and 70 percent by number of projects compared with 2009. The growth rate of investment is particularly significant given that investment in the region had been growing since 2006 but at a lower rate. Investment in new projects grew by 54 percent from 2009, and additional investment in projects implemented in 1990-2009 rose by almost 120 percent.
Investment Commitments Reach a New Peak in South Asia While the Number of New Projects Declines(World Bank, Washington, DC, 2009-12) Izaguirre, Ada Karina ; Fitzgerald, RossaPrivate activity in infrastructure in South Asia showed mixed results in 2008, according to just-released data from the private participation in infrastructure project database. Investment commitments to infrastructure projects with private participation reached a new peak thanks to additional investment in existing telecommunications operators and new energy and transport projects that reached financial or contractual closure in the first half of the year. But investment in new projects slowed in the second half of the year with the full onset of the financial crisis. This slowdown led to a decline in the number of projects for the entire year. The region accounted for 22 percent of the year's total investment commitments in developing countries. In 2008, 36 infrastructure projects with private participation reached financial or contractual closure in three South Asian countries (Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan). These projects involve investment commitments of US$17.9 billion. Infrastructure projects implemented in previous years had additional commitments of US$15.4 billion, bringing total investment in 2008 to US$33.4 billion. That represented an increase of 12 percent from the level reported in 2007 and a new peak for the region. Both new and existing projects accounted for the increase. Investment in new projects increased by 8 percent from the level in 2007, while investment in existing projects rose by 18 percent.
Investment Commitments in South Asia Remained at a Peak Level in 2007(World Bank, Washington, DC, 2008-12) Izaguirre, Ada KarinaInvestment commitments to infrastructure projects with private participation in South Asia amounted to almost US$29 billion in 2007, remaining in the US$28-29 billion range for the second consecutive year, according to just-released data from the private participation in infrastructure project database. With this investment level, South Asia accounted for 18 percent of the year's total investment commitments in developing countries. The high level of investment commitments was driven both by new projects and by projects implemented in previous years. The 58 new projects accounted for US$15.7 billion, while projects reaching financial closure in 1990-2006 attracted US$13.3 billion. Commitments to physical assets, remaining in the US$27-28 billion range, accounted for almost all the investment in the region in 2007. Payments to the government (such as spectrum or concession fees and divestiture revenues) amounted to US$0.6 billion, or less than 2 percent of annual investment.
