On April 7, our transactional partners José Morán (Chicago) and Jennifer Trock (Washington DC) moderated two sessions at "The Infrastructure Symposium" organized by the Spain-US Chamber of Commerce. The discussions led to this white paper, which includes:
- Ten Emerging Trends in Infrastructure: Tides and Trends Driving the World's Infrastructure Markets
- Sustainable Infrastructure: A Path for the Future
- 2021 Insight into the State of Infrastructure in Latin America
- A Spotlight on Major US Transport Infrastructure Projects
