    Investment Commitments Remain Stable in Latin America While the Number of New Projects Declines
    (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2009-12) Izaguirre, Ada Karina; Jett, Alexander Nicholas
    Private activity in infrastructure in Latin America and the Caribbean showed mixed results in 2008, according to just-released data from the Private Participation in Infrastructure Project database. 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 26 percent of the year's total investment commitments in developing countries, the second largest share among developing regions. In 2008, 41 infrastructure projects with private participation reached financial or contractual closure in eight low- or middle-income countries in the region. These projects involve investment commitments (hereafter, investment) of US$14.6 billion. Infrastructure projects implemented in previous years had additional commitments of US$25.7 billion, bringing total investment in 2008 to US$40.3 billion. That represented an increase of 2 percent from the level reported in 2007. Investment in existing projects, up 12 percent from the level in 2007, drove the increase.

    Investment Commitments Remain at Peak Level in Europe and Central Asia While the Number of New Projects Declines
    (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2009-12) Izaguirre, Ada Karina; Fitzgerald, Rossa
    Private activity in infrastructure in Europe and Central Asia showed mixed results in 2008, according to just-released data from the Private Participation in Infrastructure Project database. Investment in new projects slowed sharply 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 30 percent of the year's total investment commitments in developing countries, the largest share among developing regions. In 2008, 36 infrastructure projects with private participation reached financial or contractual closure in 11 low- or middle-income countries in the region. These involve investment commitments (hereafter, investment) of US$20.3 billion. Infrastructure projects implemented in previous years had additional commitments of US$25.7 billion, bringing total investment in 2008 to US$45.9 billion. That represented an increase of 3 percent from the level reported in 2007 and a new peak for the region. Investment in projects implemented in previous years accounted for the increase, growing by 6 percent from the level in 2007.

    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, Rossa
    Private 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.

    Private Activity in Energy Down, But Still Around Peak Levels
    (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2009-11) Izaguirre, Ada Karina; Perard, Edouard
    Private activity in energy showed mixed results in 2008, according to just-released data from the Private Participation in Infrastructure Project database. Although investment commitments to energy projects with private participation were down, they remained strong at the third highest level in 1990-2008. Activity in the first half of 2008 kept investment at a high level for the year. Investment slowed in the second half with the full onset of the financial crisis. The slowdown in the second half also led to a decline in the number of projects for the year. In 2008, 86 energy projects with private participation reached financial or contractual closure in 23 low- and middle-income countries. These involve investment commitments (hereafter, investment) of US$37.2 billion. Energy projects implemented in previous years had additional commitments of US$10.39 billion, bringing total investment in 2008 to US$47.5 billion. That represents a drop of 7 percent from the level reported in 2007. Lower payments to governments (such as concession or lease fees and divestiture revenues) account for the decline. By contrast, investment in physical assets, which amounted to US$38.7 billion in 2008, was up 6 percent from that reported in 2007.

    Investment Commitments in Latin America and the Caribbean Increased in 2007
    (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2008-12) Izaguirre, Ada Karina; Jett, Alexander Nicholas
    Investment commitments to infrastructure projects with private participation in Latin America and the Caribbean grew by 28 percent to US$38.3 billion in 2007, according to just-released data from the private participation in infrastructure project database. The region accounted for 24 percent of the year's total investment commitments in developing countries. Despite having grown for four consecutive years, investment commitments remained well below the region's peak levels reached in 1997-98. Investment in 2007 was just 44 percent of the peak in 1998. Previously implemented projects largely drove the 2007 investment. Projects reaching financial or contractual closure in 1990-2006 attracted US$22.3 billion, while the 46 new projects implemented in 2007 accounted for US$16 billion. Investment in physical assets amounted to US$32.5 billion. Indeed, if only investment in physical assets were counted-that is, excluding payments to the government (such as divestiture revenues and spectrum or concession fees) investment in 2007 would be just 22 percent below the peak level of 1998.

    Investment Commitments in South Asia Remained at a Peak Level in 2007
    (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2008-12) Izaguirre, Ada Karina
    Investment 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.

    This note states that in 2007 investment commitments to energy projects with private participation almost doubled in real terms compared with the activity in 2006, according to just-released data from the Private Participation in Infrastructure Project Database. The number of new energy projects grew by 8 percent.
