After decades of underinvestment, the nation's inadequate and sometimes failing infrastructure is increasingly holding the economy backcosting businesses and individuals more than $100 billion per year in lost productivity. Safety risks abound and the need for a more sustainable system is evident.
President Obama signed an executive order creating the Build America Investment Initiative (the Initiative) designed to modernize our infrastructure by joining government funding with private capital, continuing to shift subsidies from tax-exempt bonds to taxable credits.
Infrastructure's up-front costs remain imposing. Join us at The Bond Buyer's Transportation Finance/P3 Conference, November 16-18, 2014 at the Westin Arlington Gateway, to find out how public-sector agencies and other stakeholders around the nation have built coalitions to draw on varied sources of financial and political support.
The conference agenda will provide useful information you can apply, including:
- Insights into how the still-fragile global economy is driving fundamental demand for transportation capacity
- Strategies to measure and manage the volatility in the interest-rate markets that can have a massive impact on a projects cost-benefit balance
- Case studies on how to structure projects to win financing from nontraditional sources, including detailed discussions of the TIFIA program and successful P3s
- Approaches to new revenue sources addressing the dwindling gas tax and other gaps facing the transportation industry.
All transportation modesincluding roads and bridges, airports, ports, and transitneed to develop new strategies to keep their networks current in a changing financial environment. Acquire the advice and analytical means you need in Virginia this November!
