On paper, Latin America can boast an unprecedented number of multibillion-dollar infrastructure plans, particularly in the area of transportation - urban and interurban highways, airports, ports, railways and mass transit systems - and in water supply, treatment and transport. Considering that overall regional economic growth has almost ground to a halt, it is vital to gather the views of observers and key industry players on the state of the infrastructure sector and how it is developing in 2016. What other factors are important? How is the role of governments in the region viewed? What trends can be seen in terms of financing? What are the most attractive countries for private investment? These are some of the questions answered by 48 directors, general managers, commercial managers, country managers, consultants, specialists, economists and academics representing construction companies, engineering firms, technology solutions providers, government institutions and NGOs, consultancy firms, service providers, finance companies and universities. Most of the respondents have operations in, or their focus is in Mexico, Chile, Colombia, Brazil, Peru and Argentina.
