BMI View: PPPs will be the major d river for infrastructure construction growth over the coming years, as the Colombian government has bee n widely successful in using the model to attract private sector capital, especially into the 4G Highway Concession Program. Additional capital from international debt financing and newly creating infrastructure funds are helping to diversify funding sources for infrastructure and will be critical for maintaining robust growth in light of government fiscal constraints .

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

  • Colombia's construction industry will continue to outperform in the region, with the sector expected to reach 5.3% real growth in 2016 and average 5.7% annually over our five-year forecast (2016-2020).

  • The successful implementation of the public-private partnership under the auspices of the Agencia Nacional de Infraestructura (ANI), will be the major driver of future growth, as the majority of high-value projects awarded recently are utilizing the model.

  • Within this space, the USD25bn 4G Highway Concession Programme will be the largest benefactor of innovative financing and PPPs. As of September, seven projects under the program have entered into construction.

  • International capital will play a crucial role, helping to complement the domestic banking industry and bolster financing availability. Additionally, the creation of new infrastructure funds will further diversify Colombia's financing sources, reducing the risks associated with the financing stage of the project cycle.
