Objective

The 2017 Paris InfraWeek brings together the most influential players of the infrastructure investment industry for an open and thorough dialogue on developments and key trends in Infrastructure Finance.

Who should attend ?

Major international institutional investors, fund managers, lenders, arrangers, multilaterals as well as government and European Union officials, infrastructure developers, lawyers and financial consultants, academia, and other players of the infrastructure finance community from all around the world.

Why Paris?

Paris has a long history of proven success in infrastructure finance thanks to the presence of some of the most prominent international sponsors, top-ranking banking groups, leading infrastructure funds, a strong community of legal and financial services, and a favorable and innovative regulatory environment. France benefits from a strong position in infrastructure investment with €4.8 bn for brownfield projects, 3.4 bn for greenfield projects and €3.6 bn for refinancing in 2016. France is also a very active platform for infrastructure investment overseas, in developed and emerging areas, particularly Africa. The Paris financial center thus has an extremely solid experience in structuring financing for French, European and overseas project, and indeed full legitimacy to host a full week of debates on Infrastructure Finance.
