CABEI promotes public-private investments for sustainable development in the region
The CABEI delegation begins the visit to innovative projects in Honduras with the aim of replicating it in member countries.
Tegucigalpa October 21, 2021.- The role of Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) to develop the infrastructure required by the region is of vital importance to achieve sustainable development, said the Executive President of the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI), Dr. Dante Mossi, during a tour of projects in northern Honduras on Thursday.
"Given the importance of PPPs, CABEI supports these investment mechanisms through its pre-investment and technical cooperation programs for institutional strengthening and capacity building of PPP units, as well as in project structuring and implementing different financial and risk mitigation modalities and instruments," explained Mossi.
In this regard, he indicated that the current portfolio of PPP projects in the different countries of the region mainly deals with transportation infrastructure and that it is expected that other types of investments such as water and sanitation, hospital and educational infrastructure, among others, will be strengthened.
On the field tour, Mossi concluded: "our directors and management team are witnessing first-hand some examples of infrastructures implemented under this scheme, as well as the challenges and improvement needs for their development".
