A robust and modern infrastructure boosts economic growth, creates jobs, and improves living standards. Because governments in emerging economies often lack resources to spend on infrastructure, private enterprises have a huge opportunity to step up and make a significant contribution by providing essential services to large numbers of people—efficiently, affordably, and profitably. IFC supports private infrastructure projects with innovative, high-impact business models that can be replicated.
In FY19, our new long-term investments in this sector totaled about $3.9 billion, including $2.9 billion mobilized from other investors.
