(World Bank, Washington, DC, 2013-03)
A total of United States (U.S.) 38
billion dollars in investment commitments, 107
infrastructure projects, 19 countries, and 4 sectors: this
is a quick snapshot of what Singaporean companies invested
in private infrastructure projects from 1990 to 2011.1
Nearly 67 percent of total investment and over 85 percent of
all infrastructure projects were implemented after 2000.
Private investment peaked in 2007 when Singaporean sponsors
invested over U.S. 6.4 billion dollars and developed a
number of 19 new infrastructure projects. The project was
expected to cost U.S. 1,426.38 million dollars and achieved
financial closure in September 2007. A consortium of banks
with rural electrification corporation in the lead provided
the debt for the project.
