South East Asia’s required investment of USD 1 trillion for transport infrastructure in next five years complements a similar requirement from India and an even higher requirement from China.
Yet apart from the challenge in sourcing for funds, coordination with relevant AEC / EPC firms and identifying the right technology to develop transport civil infrastructure are just as daunting.
Running for the third consecutive year, the 3rd annual Bridges Asia and 3rd annual Tunnel Design & Construction Asia will be co-located in 2012, assembling the region’s asset owners, government policy makers, engineers, financial institutions and legal firms.
This unique arrangement is set up in respond to calls from stakeholders of both the bridge engineering and tunnel construction industries to create a one-stop platform for both sides to meet and exchange best practices in engineering, funding and project management.
At this first-of-its-kind conference, vendors will be well placed to bid for projects as asset and project owners will be announcing their current and future transport infrastructure master plans.
IQPC’s Construction IQ, which organizes both events will also be lining up experts from global AEC (Architectural, Engineering and Construction) and EPC
(Engineering, Procurement and Construction) firms to present at both the conferences. They will outline the latest trends in bridge and tunnel engineering.
Going by the delegate attendance of past conferences, the co-location of these two events will create Asia’s largest transport infrastructure conference, as it expects to welcome more than 300 regional stakeholders and some 60 international experts who are currently managing the constructing of long span bridges and tunnels.
The event is expected to create a much required interface and synergy between transport infrastructure industry stakeholders in Asia.
