Panel Discussion
Risk Mitigation in Infrastructure Financing

Private sector capital is much needed for financing the infrastructure projects in Belt and Road countries given their vast development needs yet limited fiscal resources. However, participation of private sector capital in infrastructure financing in emerging economies have been limited due to various types of risks. Therefore, properly mitigating various forms of risks is most critical to improving the bankability of infrastructure projects.

Comprising senior representatives from different key stakeholders in infrastructure financing, this panel will look into the risk factors that hinder private sector capital’s participation and more importantly, the corresponding mitigation solutions.
