Industrial and urban growth in the emerging markets has led to unprecedented investment plans in infrastructure. This is creating opportunities for infrastructure operators, engineering and construction companies, private materials, and financial firms.
In fact, 59% of CEOs say they see emerging markets as more important than developed markets to their future, according to EFAS 15th Annual Global CEO Survey.
