Held from May 16 to 17, at The Roosevelt Hotel, in New York, Infra Latin America GRI 2019 gathered more than 250 private sector leaders and Latin American government authorities for an intense program of informal networking and discussions on the infrastructure market scenario and perspectives in the main countries of the region – particularly, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Argentina, and Chile.

“There are several political and economic transformations going on in the Latin American scenario. An approximation between private sector and government representatives is essential for developing the infrastructure industry in the region. The event was a unique opportunity to strengthen new alliances and draw a true picture of what lies ahead,” highlights Pedro Nicolau, GRI Club’s global head of Infrastructure.

Attending the conference were names of the likes of Aurelio Oliveira (Enel Americas), Balint Szentivanyi (Fraport), Bernardo Serafim (Vinci Concessions), Carlos Barrera (Atlas Renewable Energy), Chucri Hjeily (I Squared Capital), David Perl (AimCo), Eduardo Camargo (CCR Aeroportos), Eduardo Centola (Banco Modal), Ionut Doldor (AviAlliance), John Tanyeri (MetLife Investments), José Iván Jaramillo (REP), José María Zertuche (BlackRock Real Assets), Kazuki Shimizu (Mitsui & Co), Mike McCarthy (APG Asset Management), Paul David (Allianz Global Investors), Ricardo Szlejf (CPPIB), Rui Chammas (Sterlite Power), Stacey Purcell (Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan), Tomás Uribe (Grupo Odinsa) and Wilson Ferreira Jr. (Eletrobras).

As keynote speakers, the event had the participation of Adalberto Vasconcelos, special secretary for the federal government of Brazil’s Investment Partnership Program (IPP), Bibop Gresta, president and cofounder of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (a company that is developing a high-speed transportation capsule system), and Emmanuel Jaclot, executive vice president and head of Infrastructure at CDPQ, who spoke about investment opportunities in the region.

The agenda then included several simultaneous discussion rooms and networking activities, all designed to strengthen ties between the executives and public officials.
