    (World Bank, Washington, DC, 2012-01) Nicholas, Alexander
    In 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.

    For Fifth Consecutive Year India Drove Private Activity in Infrastructure in South Asia to a New Peak in 2010
    (Washington, DC, 2011-08) World Bank
    In 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.
