Description

With Indian economy moving on to a high growth trajectory facilitated by a consistent and steady growth of 8 - 9% in the recent years, there is a critical need to accelerate investments in the infrastructure sector. In fact, infrastructure has emerged as a key driver for sustaining the robust growth of the economy and the government has been focusing on development of infrastructure. Although there has been progress in attracting private investments into infrastructure, Gross Capital Formation (GCF) in infrastructure has hovered around 5 percent  of Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

 

In the current 5 year plan, from 2007-2012, investment in infrastructure in India is expected to cross US$ 500 billion; almost touching 9 percent of GDP by the terminal year 2012.   A major part of this investment, as high as 36%, would come from private sector.  Going forward, in the next 5 year plan, from 2012-2017, India is planning to up-scale investment in infrastructure to US$ 1 trillion i.e. 9 to 10.7% of the GDP.

 

To attract investment of such staggering magnitude, India will require a strong and vibrant long term debt market coupled with innovative ways to attract investments from both within India and abroad. 

The conference facilitated an in-depth discussion on some of the key challenges to meet the growing needs of infrastructure financing – Long Term Debt Market, Institutional Framework to upscale PPP, Policy Framework, Regulatory Architecture and Financial Instruments required to up-scale the investment in infrastructure to 1 trillion $.

 

The Conference had plenary sessions covering:
