In our first episode of our new Future Forces mini-series, Ashurst Australia partner Ratha Nabanidham, who specialises in mergers and acquisitions with particular expertise in the infrastructure, energy and resources sectors, speaks to the Head of Global Infrastructure at QIC, Ross Israel, and Mark Barges, Ashurst partner in our Paris projects practice about the expected extraordinary growth and innovation in the world’s infrastructure sector.
In this episode, three infrastructure experts discuss how megatrends, such as the race to net zero and accelerated digitalisation, present incredible infrastructure opportunities for construction, transport and IT companies. They share an overview of how infrastructure investment has changed over the past five years, the outlook of the infrastructure sector and why the infrastructure industry should embrace the concept of “resilience”. They also discuss how government and businesses can overcome barriers to build a platform for communities to thrive in the future. For more information on the economic, geopolitical, and social megatrends to watch out for and the capabilities infrastructure businesses require to navigate these trends and tap the opportunities for growth, read the Future Forces Infrastructure report here.
