YDA managed to attract significant participation from international lenders on the first ever dual conventional and Islamic healthcare PPP in Turkey, a €265mn facility to help finance the construction of the Konya Hospital.
The unprecedented corruption scandal engulfing Brazilian construction giant Odebrecht has reverberated throughout the industry, seeping into neighbouring Colombia and Peru and leading to the delay or outright cancellation of some of the region’s flagship infrastructure projects. We speak with Luis Fernando Andrade Moreno, President of the National Infrastructure Agency of Colombia (ANI), about the industry’s concerns around any potential effects on the funding environment surrounding one of the region’s most successful infrastructure programmes.
Confronted with a struggling economy and constrained fiscal headroom, the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) has dramatically scaled back loan disbursements, leaving the private sector to pick up much of the slack. The development bank is also changing tactics in a bid to ensure projects that are vital to the country’s economy can still access important sources of revenue.
Large-scale transport and infrastructure development programmes across Peru and Colombia are bringing crucial projects to the region, creating jobs and introducing innovative, complex financing models to countries that in the past failed to exploit the full potential of international capital markets.
Sustainable energy and infrastructure projects across South and Central America are attracting attention from investors, but the outlook is challenged due to a lack of awareness on the ground.

The lack of political unity in each Andean market is further challenged by a global environment that has turned hostile with rising interest rates, depressed commodity prices and anti-trade rhetoric proliferating in the US and Western Europe.
Chile has been one of the major success stories in Latin America over the past decade. As the economy slowed in the past year amid the commodities slump, the Chilean government is looking to attract local and foreign capital to finance an ambitious programme of sustainable energy projects across the country. The country is well positioned to succeed in this endeavour, analysts believe.
With a new government in charge, hopes are high for a rebound in the infrastructure pipeline
The Russian oil giant’s initial announcement of a privatization deal involving Swiss oil giant Glencore and the Qatari Investment Authority was deemed a huge success for CEO Igor Sechin and the Kremlin. But contradictory statements that followed from various participants in the deal and the generally opaque nature of the transaction left behind a lot of loose threads.
New projects and opportunities continue to attract a broad range of lenders and investors to places like Colombia and Peru, with the next wave of 4G infrastructure projects in the case of the former and revitalization of investment authority ProInversion in the case of the latter catalyzing the region’s project pipeline.
