Poorer countries attract

Poorer countries attract less private investment in infrastructure and see a dip in the number of projects funded

According to G20 research, while the general level of investment has remained rather stagnant since 2014, the gap between high-income countries and middle- and low-income countries has widened, with levels in the latter group continuing to decline. While investment grew by 8.3 % in high-income countries in 2021, it fell for a third year in middle- and low-income countries, by 8.8 %. The same is true for the number of infrastructure projects, which dropped due to the pandemic and has not yet recovered.
