Project Description
From the IADB: The objective of this Technical Cooperation is to promote trade and investment in Ibero-America, by facilitating the public and private sector with strategic information to make decisions towards specific trade and investment opportunities and propose sector specific recommendations to dismantle the barriers that are impeding the private sector to invest in the region. Emphasis will be given on the use of public-private partnerships (PPPs) as mechanisms for successfully developing infrastructure and projects in strategic sectors and on what countries should do to effectively bring PPP projects to market. The objectives and activities of the project correspond to the Bank's Strategies for Sustainable Infrastructure for Competitiveness and Inclusive Growth and Regional Integration (GN-2565-4), as it will promote partnerships, trade, investment and regional integration through the exchange of experiences and best practices in infrastructure development, sustainable and renewable energy, access to water and sanitation, private sector role in the region, as well as trade promotion and through the creation of trade capacity building. In addition, the project's objectives are aligned with the sector priorities identified in the GCI-9, in particular numeral (d) Competitive regional and global international integration. The project is also aligned with the objectives of the Spanish General Cooperation Fund (FGE) as the activities proposed will promote regional integration, improvements in productivity and competitiveness, promotion of the private sector.
