IPFA Europe: Brussels

Infrastructure Investments in Belgium - Focus on Brussels and Wallonia

With a new government and the expected development of the “Walloon Plan for Strategic Investment” initiated at the end of the previous legislature, the Walloon Region is renewing the focus on infrastructure investment. With the Tram de Liège PPP, the SOFICO “Plan Lumière” PPP and other initiatives, and in the context of limited budgetary resources, the incremental shift towards private finance has attracted interest from market participants and investors. The event will explore these topical developments and bring together policy makers, financiers and professional advisers for open exchanges of views.
