Rob Mooren, ARCADIS Global Director of Infrastructure, in the company’s press release said: “Good infrastructure is important for the long term economic development of a country. Many governments are struggling to finance infrastructure investments. As traditional debt markets are now harder to access, governments need to find alternative finance and agree to progressing projects. By encouraging private finance into infrastructure, governments can remain globally competitive and meet their social and economic objectives.”
Singapore, which topped the GIII, and Malaysia are the only two countries in Southeast Asia being ranked among the top ten most attractive countries for infrastructure investment in 2014.
