The infrastructure and PPP (Public Private Partnerships) developments in Asia have played an important role in the region’s socio-economic growth in recent decades. Canadian companies have been actively participating in these projects covering a wide range of disciplines such as project management, investment, professional services, equipment and materials, ICT, logistics & supply chain, etc.
Since early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the whole world and the infrastructure sectors and industries are not immune. This webinar will look at the infrastructure and PPP sectors in Asia in the new normal as well as the trends in post-COVID recovery, and the possible opportunities for Canadian companies.
Please join us and our guest thought-leaders to exchange experience and insights, and chart actions for Canadian companies aspiring to expand or start their participation in Asia’s infrastructure and PPP developments.
