Private Activity in Infrastructure in the Middle East and North Africa Remained at low Levels in 2010

2011-08, World Bank

In 2010, three infrastructure projects with private participation reached financial or contractual closure in three low- and middle-income countries, involving investment commitments of US$1.1 billion. Infrastructure projects implemented in the 1990-2009 period attracted new investment of US$5.8 billion, bringing total investment commitments (hereafter, investment) to infrastructure in the region to US$6.9 billion in 2010. This level of investment is similar to the one reported in the region in 2009 (US$6.8 billion). However, private activity by number of projects is one third of the one reported in 2009 during the previous year (nine new projects in 2009).

Investment Commitments and the Number of New Projects Decline in the Middle East and North Africa

2009-12, Izaguirre, Ada Karina, Perard, Edouard

Private activity in infrastructure in the Middle East and North Africa declined sharply in 2008, according to just-released data from the Private Participation in Infrastructure Project database. Both investment commitments and the number of new projects declined, in both the first and second half of the year. Existing telecommunications operators accounted for most of the annual investment. The region's share of total investment commitments in developing countries in 2008 was less than 4 percent, down significantly from its 7.3 percent share in 2007. In 2008, 10 infrastructure projects with private participation reached financial or contractual closure in six low- or middle-income countries in the region. These involve investment commitments (hereafter, investment) of US$2.4 billion. Infrastructure projects implemented in previous years had additional commitments of US$3.6 billion, bringing total investment in 2008 to US$6 billion. This level represented a 49 percent drop from that in 2007 and was the lowest since 2003.

Investment Commitments in the Middle East and North Africa Reached a Peak Level in 2007

2008-12, Izaguirre, Ada Karina, Perard, Edouard

Investment commitments to infrastructure projects with private participation in the Middle East and North Africa grew by 7 percent to US$12.8 billion in 2007, the highest level since 1990, according to just-released data from the private participation in infrastructure project database. The region accounted for 8 percent of the year's total investment commitments to developing countries. Investment commitments in the region were driven mainly by projects implemented in previous years. Projects reaching financial closure in 1990-2006 attracted US$7.8 billion, while the 13 new projects implemented in 2007 accounted for US$5.1 billion. Investment in physical assets grew by 35 percent to US$8.3 billion, the highest level ever. Payments to governments (such as divestiture revenues and spectrum or concession fees) fell from the highest level reached (US$5.3 billion, in 2006) to US$4.6 billion, about 36 percent of annual investment.
