Briefing on the Global Infrastructure Forum 2018

  • Date: Monday, 17 September 2018, 09:30 to 11:00
  • Location: Conference Room 11, UNHQ, New York

The briefing will inform Member States regarding the preparation for the 2018 Global Infrastructure Forum, which is hosted this year by the Asian Development Bank and held in Bali, Indonesia on October 13, 2018.

The briefing will provide an opportunity to learn about the expected outcome of this year’s forum and discuss past achievements. The briefing will also provide space for an interactive discussion among delegates, multilateral development banks and other stakeholders.

The Global Infrastructure Forum, led by the multilateral development banks, was established by the Addis Ababa Action Agenda to improve alignment and coordination among infrastructure initiatives, encourage a greater range of voices to be heard, highlight opportunities for investment and cooperation, and work to ensure that investments are environmentally, socially and economically sustainable.

We welcome the participation of all delegations and other stakeholders in this briefing and look forward to your contributions. For further information please contact Mr. Mathieu Verougstraete (email verougstraete@un.org, tel 1 (917) 367-4242).
