Infrastructure Intelligence Series: The return of Mexican private investment

Bnamericas Published: Monday, December 23, 2013

Private investment in Mexico's infrastructure sector has been in decline since the 1990s but President Enrique Peña Nieto's ambitious 4tn-peso (US$314bn) national infrastructure planpromises ample opportunities for the return of large-scale private investment, according to BNamericas' December Infrastructure Intelligence Series.

"It is a fact that since 1995, the federal government has relied more on public investment to fund projects, particularly in the case of road infrastructure," according to the report.

However, many of the projects included in the national infrastructure plan are envisaged as public-private partnerships, and a series of business opportunities are "expected to arise from asset spinoffs by major local and international concessionaires whose current financial situation prevents them from participating in new infrastructure tenders," according to the report.

Financing for interested investors is expected to be readily available, and the predicted increase in capital market funding for infrastructure projects should add significant resources to the pot.

While finance may be readily available, BNamericas warns that deficient project planning must be resolved if the projects are to be completed on time and within the initial budget.
