Partnership to put region’s infrastructure opportunities in spotlight
Manila, May 10, 2019: Oxford Business Group (OBG) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG) company InfraCo Asia, an infrastructure development and investment firm focused on stimulating greater private sector investment in infrastructure development in south and southeast Asia.
Under the agreement, OBG will partner with InfraCo Asia to gain insight into the infrastructure industry and project investment opportunities in regional frontier markets. This information will become part of OBG’s platforms and editorial content, providing OBG readers and subscribers with an even greater depth and scope of coverage on infrastructure-related topics.
The MoU was signed ahead of an infrastructure-themed roundtable, which took place at the Tower Club in Singapore on March 1, 2019. The roundtable was hosted by PIDG and InfraCo Asia, in partnership with OBG.
More than 60 Asia-based infrastructure leaders and public-sector dignitaries came together to explore how to effectively overcome the obstacles to infrastructure development in Asia’s frontier markets.
Commenting after the signing Allard Nooy, CEO, InfraCo Asia, said he was delighted to be teaming up with OBG, adding that the partnership would undoubtedly equip business leaders working in Asia’s frontier markets with a rich set of information and insights.
“Through its investments and project development efforts, InfraCo Asia catalyses private sector investment in sustainable infrastructure projects in south and southeast Asia. Our work at the frontier of infrastructure development in the region provides us with an unparalleled view of market conditions and best practices, and we are glad to utilize our partnership with OBG to help more private sector investors understand the opportunities and the risks at hand,” Nooy said. “Increasing the availability of information about infrastructure industry conditions and project opportunities supports InfraCo Asia’s aim to stimulate greater private sector investment in infrastructure in south and southeast Asia. Oxford Business Group’s well-established presence in several of our key markets makes them an ideal partner and platform from which to disseminate relevant learnings and insights from these regions.”
Patrick Cooke, OBG’s Regional Editor in Asia, also welcomed the partnership, saying he was confident that the synergies between the two firms and the common ground that they shared would support both firms in their work.
“Although Asian economies offer extensive project pipelines, including several initiatives that are vital for facilitating cross-border connectivity, the regional infrastructure deficit is understandably causing concern,” he said. “InfraCo Asia works to enlist the support of the private sector to address these funding gaps, while Oxford Business Group’s coverage of emerging economies includes in-depth analysis of innovative solutions to infrastructure challenges. I’m delighted that our research into the region’s untapped investment opportunities in infrastructure will benefit from InfraCo Asia’s expertise and additional resources.”
