— Biden infrastructure plan should look to strategic infrastructure planning principles

— Review of UK competition policy recommends a reduction in the role of asset owners
ICE's view: These challenges were explored at the launch of the Enabling Better Infrastructure Programme in New York, which highlighted the benefits of applying the 12 guiding principles to the US. The principles are a good place for the new administration to look as it develops its infrastructure plan, particularly if it wants it to make a long-term difference.
Establishing a vision, as they have done, is an excellent first step. What is needed next is a thorough and independent needs assessment of the US infrastructure system.
ICE's view: Asset recycling and infrastructure banks are useful policy solutions to increase finance flow to infrastructure system development. ICE explored these solutions in our 2018 State of the Nation report on funding and financing, noting the benefits.
As we explored in the previous Infrastructure Policy Watch, the UK government is set to come forward with its proposals for a UK Infrastructure Bank imminently.
ICE's view: The need for regulatory reform is gaining a lot of traction in the UK, given the significant scale of investment required to meet national objectives around house building, decarbonisation, adaptation to climate change and digitising networks. The current regulatory set-up is focused on achieving the lowest cost to the consumer, which can create perverse disincentives to think long-term.
In a policy paper last year, we set out changes that needed to be made, some of which align with the Power to the People report recommendations.
