New York Alumni Breakfast Series with Bob Dewing '79
October 25, 2013: 7:30 AM - 9:00 AM
Infrastructure - Do we have enough, where does it come from, can we afford it, who should pay for it, how is it managed, what are the business opportunities?
Infrastructure assets are some of the basic building blocks of society; we all rely on these facilities to carry out our daily lives. Population growth, obsolescence of existing facilities and declining financial flexibility of governments are leading to a re-assessment as to how infrastructure related services can be provided to society. This talk will review the contemporary situation, contemplate the future possibilities and put forward some of the feasible opportunities.
