WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/11 -- CG/LA Infrastructure LLC, the global leader in infrastructure project identification, announced today the release of the Top 100 Global Strategic Infrastructure Projects for 2012. The total estimated value of the projects is nearly US $800 billion, double the value of the Top 100 Projects for 2011. The list is being released in the lead-up to the 5th Annual Global Infrastructure Leadership Forum to be held in London, February 22-24, 2012. The theme of this year's Global Forum is "High-Value Projects, High Level Alliances, World Class Expertise." London is a natural location for the Forum, given the city's position as a hub of two critical infrastructure values, world trade and financial expertise.
According to Norman F. Anderson, President and CEO of CG/LA Infrastructure LLC, "At a time of enormous challenge, the Global Forum brings leaders of the world's most important projects together to increase the velocity of project design and finance, and to optimize the opportunity creation potential in each project." More than 500 executives, from private and public sectors around the world, will participate in the Forum. "We are creating a new model for global infrastructure."
Winning Infrastructure Clusters: Middle East & Asia - The Middle East and Asia are key players on this year's list. Middle Eastern/North African countries, led by the Gulf States, are creating the fastest growing infrastructure market in the world, with over $200 billion in projects. Luis Alvarez, President BT Global Services EMEA and Latin America, a Platinum sponsor of the Forum says, "BT Global Services is excited to participate in the Global Infrastructure Leadership Forum and help world class project sponsors move intelligently towards accomplishing their goals."
Asian/Pacific projects total $172.8 billion. Australia, whose Western province alone has $40 billion in projects on the Top 100 List, leads the way. According to Giles Nunis, Deputy Director General of Western Australia's Resources and Industry Development Agency, "This is a once-in-a-lifetime period in Western Australia's history in terms of infrastructure development and investment. We are looking forward to presenting these opportunities to leaders in engineering, finance and operations."
