The Forum is an annual gathering of 48 senior in-house counsel from the largest institutional investors and preeminent lawyers from across the globe, to address emerging risks and challenges in direct investments in major infrastructure projects around the world.
Using candid, peer-driven discussion, this Forum explores trends and developments in foreign infrastructure investments, to discern best practices for successfully completing transactions and address the long term risks facing investors.
