Overview

The race is on in Asia to bridge the infrastructure funding gap now estimated at US1.7 trillion per year. Mobilising private capital to complement the financing initiatives of MDBs and Governments is now a top priority as the landscape for investment evolves rapidly, influenced by a new era in geo-economics, cross border connectivity and geopolitics, and an increased focus on sustainable development.

This inaugural FT-AIIB Summit, organised by the Financial Times in partnership with the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, will bring together senior policy makers, investors, developers and advisors to discuss the opportunities and challenges facing the market, and the steps that should be taken to deliver on the vision for Asian infrastructure.

Agenda - 1st Nov

  • 8:00am
    Registration and networking
  • 8:50am
    Opening Remarks from the Financial Times
  • 9:00am
    Welcome Address
  • 9:10am
    Opening keynote: The vision for Asian infrastructure

    Jin Liqun, President, AIIB

  • 9:40am
    Keynote: How are geo-economics reshaping infrastructure investment?
  • 10:10am
    Panel: Green infrastructure - from policy to practice

    Infrastructure investment has a vital role to play in delivering on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement. In Asia success will require a seismic shift in how the regional project pipeline is planned, designed and funded, ultimately determining economies’ resource intensity, energy security and dependence on fossil fuels in the long-term. Progress is already being made with the establishment of an Asean hub for the Sustainable Development Investment Partnership but the challenge now is to put policy into practice, incorporating cross border political cooperation, business leadership and technological advancement. How can national and regional priorities and strategies be aligned to achieve climate resilient infrastructure and renewable efficient energy sources – can the Belt and Road initiative be used as a guide? What standards are being used to judge the sustainability of projects in the region and how do they compare with standards used in the US and Europe? What progress is being made in utilising alternative technologies to level the playing field with fossil fuel? As the annual value of Green Bonds being issued looks set to reach US$1 trillion by 2020, what other structures could mobilise private capital in sustainable infrastructure and what are the main risks and uncertainties for investors and developers?

    Joachim von Amsberg, Vice President, Policy and Strategy, AIIB 

  • 11:00am
    Refreshments and networking
  • 11:30am
    Keynote dialogue
  • 12:00pm
    Panel: Breaking down barriers to incentivise long-term private capital

    The need for private investment in Asian infrastructure has reached a critical level, with the funding deficit now estimated at US$1.7 trillion per year. However, despite growing levels of ‘dry powder’ and an appetite for infrastructure amongst investors seeking diversification, and inflation and interest rate protection, the funding gap remains. What is holding institutional investors, private equity firms and investment funds back from piling in to capitalise on the potentially lucrative returns of infrastructure? What steps can Governments and MDBs take to engage with potential investors, understand their preferences and tackle concerns around transparency, and legal and political governance? Where are the most attractive long-term opportunities in Asia, and what are the most effective structures to access them? As the requirement for private funding becomes ever more crucial is it time for project pipelines to be reanalysed from the investors’ perspective focusing on financial viability, risk allocation and the risk return profile when compared with other investment opportunities?

    Boon Chin Hau, Senior Vice President and Head Asia & Emerging Markets Infrastructure, GIC

    Martin Kimmig, Chief Risk Officer, AIIB

  • 1:00pm
    Lunch for speakers and delegates
  • 2:00pm
    Keynote dialogue
  • 2:30pm
    Panel: Accelerating capital markets development across Asia to facilitate infrastructure finance

    Deepening local capital markets in Asia is seen by many as vital to securing the private capital required to bridge the widening infrastructure funding gap. Low yields and a stronger dollar, as well as the promised Belt & Road pipeline, present an unique opportunity for the region’s nascent local markets to expand, and capitalise on investor demand for stable, long-term returns, as well as diversify the funding sources available to projects in Asia. What is the outlook for the expansion of capital markets in the region and where are the limitations when applied to greenfield and brownfield infrastructure projects? As competition heats up, which financial centre is likely to emerge as the hub and centre of excellence for cross-border, regional infrastructure development? To what extent is the rise of green bond issuance in China being replicated in other countries and is current investor appetite sustainable? What steps need to be taken to enhance the development of local currency bond markets and how can their potential be fully realised? What can Asia learn and take from Europe’s 2020 Project Bond Initiative?

    Thierry de Longuemar, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, AIIB

  • 3:15pm
    Refreshments and networking
  • 3:30pm
    Panel: Overcoming the obstacles to a seamless cross-border infrastructure in Asia

    The benefits of cross border infrastructure developments are clear, enhancing trade, growth, inclusivity and economic integration within and between countries. However, delivering on initiatives such as China’s ambitious Belt and Road, the Bangladesh-China-India Myanmar Economic Corridor, the KL-Singapore high speed rail project and others can be constrained by political challenges, structural adjustments and fiscal imbalances. What steps do policy makers need to take to facilitate the building of a coherent architecture of mega-regional infrastructure developments across Asia? How can regional cooperation at a political and practical level be fostered to effectively to explore mutually beneficial synergies, manage programmes and regulatory challenges? What changes are needed in governance structures to manage project risks and secure much needed private sector financing?

    Frederic Ribieras, Vice President and CFO, Global Growth Operations, GE

    Tan Cheng Guan, Executive Vice President & Head Group Business Development & Commercial, Utilities, Sembcorp Industries

  • 4:15pm
    Keynote Dialogue: Opportunities and challenges in investing in India infrastructure

    India has a huge unmet need for investment in infrastructure, estimated at about US$646 billion over the next five years in the power, roads and urban infrastructure sectors. What are the most effective approaches for investors to tap into the potential of this vast market? How is Government working to facilitate and bring together public and private infrastructure investment, and is the end in sight for project delays and bottlenecks?

  • 4:45pm
    Panel Discussion: Thinking now about next generation infrastructure…

    Disruptive technologies such as drones, driverless cars and digitally connected smart cities are rapidly transforming landscape for infrastructure, reshaping how developments are planned, funded and operated. On top of this there is a growing awareness that projects and assets built now need to stand the test of time against a background of technological innovation, political change, increasing urbanisation and an ageing population. How can developers, governments and investors future proof their infrastructure developments in transport, water, waste, energy and building design and seize the on the efficiencies and valuable opportunities that innovation will open up? Panellists in this session will discuss what the future may bring to recalibrate infrastructure plans and strategies, and lead improvements to drive better outcomes throughout the asset lifecycle.

  • 5:30pm
    Chairman’s closing remarks
