Other Infrastructure Boom

While in many countries, we are investing in ink from the potential hundreds of millions of dollars that could be spent on developing roads, railways and ports – the bigger picture and the more profits are missing.

The real possibility is not here – it is in Asia where the dollar spent in the next five years will even knock the most optimistic forecasts in any other region on the planet.

Cost of logistics – moving goods from place to place – extremely high. The World Bank's logistics performance index puts 35 in India – less well than much smaller economies and populations, such as Portugal or Estonia.

China, despite the fact that the main lines of trains and new motorways have to develop a high-quality transport infrastructure. When the World Bank links all of the logistics costs, China is far from the 27th place (Germany 1, Hong Kong 9th Separate Economic Region, US 10, and Japan No.

Not disappointed, a few months ago, China's State Council has said it will spend $ 2.17 trillion on railways, roads, airports and seaports. And if these goals go through, all the money will be spent only in the next three years. If China hopes to meet its own ambitions in a new "silk road" – the country's center for its own commercial and economic funding network – it will have to spend a lot more to improve its transport links between its main entrance and commercial partners.
