About this event

The theme of the convention is "Investment Led Infrastructure Development".

The Chinese government's 'One Belt, One Road' policy and the creation of a new Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), expected to be operational by the end of this year, promise exciting new opportunities for investors, construction, and communities across Asia.

The AIIB will focus on the development of infrastructure and other sectors in Asia, including energy and power, transportation and telecommunications, rural infrastructure and agriculture development, water supply and sanitation, environmental protection, urban development and logistics, etc. Its founding partners include representatives from over 50 countries including Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Nepal, New Zealand, Pakistan, Singapore, Sri Lanka, and the United Kingdom.

While details are still emerging, the time is right to reflect on the practical experience of recent infrastructure projects and how they can inform the implementation of the 'One Belt, One Road' policy.

In particular, the promise of new economic opportunities across less developed parts of Asia presents fresh challenges for the infrastructure and investment communities. How do we manage risk to release investment funds? What are the most appropriate legal structures? What can contractors and consultants from participating nations learn from their different experiences of projects in Asia, Africa and Europe?

The conference brings speakers and delegates from China, the UK and across the Asia-pacific region to share their experiences. It examines the key principles for the successful delivery of major infrastructure schemes, uses case studies to explore those principles in practice, and brings together perspectives from different countries to identify key lessons for the next wave of infrastructure investment across Asia.

The detailed program of events outlining guest speakers and topics will be made available shortly.
