Webinar: The Eurasian Infrastructure Sector – July 14, 21, and 28

Please join the Office of Russia, Ukraine & Eurasia and the International Trade Administration’s Global Design and Construction Team for a series of three webinars focused on Eurasia’s infrastructure sector. The region’s governments are making multi-billion dollar investments to replace or rehabilitate their Soviet-era roads, railways, maritime ports, municipal water, and power infrastructure, while international multilateral institutions continue to provide significant financial and programmatic support for infrastructure projects, helping to fill investment gaps and needs in the region, which includes Russia, Ukraine, the Caucasus region, and Central Asia.

How big are these needs? The Asian Development Bank estimates developing Asia (including Central Asia) will need to invest $1.7 trillion per year in infrastructure until 2030 to maintain its growth, while Ukraine will need to secure $8-10 billion of investment per year into its infrastructure sector by 2030 to reach its development goals. The funding to fill this gap will come from numerous sources, but collectively represents a massive opportunity for U.S. equipment manufacturers and construction services providers to explore. These webinars will help equip U.S. companies with the up-to-date knowledge to better take advantage of this dynamically developing sector.
