The United Kingdom recently announced the need to invest heavily in their infrastructure, and wish to lock in massive transportation projects valued at $160 billion. The 2016 Strategic 100 Global Infrastructure Report by CGLA put the UK at the top of its list of locations for project opportunities, beating out China, United States, Japan, and Indonesia to secure its spot at the top of the rankings by project value.

With these opportunities now available, the U.S. Department of Commerce (U.S. Commercial Service-UK) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) will be hosting this webinar for U.S. firms looking to secure opportunities in the UK and beyond.

The best prospects for these opportunities include:

  • Architecture, engineering and construction firms
  • Innovative suppliers to airports, roads/bridges and rail projects
  • Sustainable products, smart machinery and equipment
  • Firms bringing efficient or environmentally forward solutions to infrastructure
