Industrial and urban growth in the emerging markets over recent years has led to increased government spending to develop infrastructure in key territories, including China, India, Russia and Central and Eastern Europe, a trend which is continuing in the face of the current economic downturn. E&C companies have significant opportunities to win work as governments increasingly open doors to inbound investment, through PPP/PFI, joint ventures, foreign direct investment, and partnering. The challenges remain significant, as E&C companies need to manage regulatory issues, procurement strategies, and the local market and business culture, which vary widely around the world.
