9:45-11:15 a.m. — Plenary Session: Asset Recycling-- The Trump Initiative, Australian Experience and U.S. Challenges

The Trump Administration’s infrastructure initiative includes proposals for incentivizing non-federal investment, and numerous senior administration officials have promoted the concept of “infrastructure recycling,” drawing in part from experience in Australia. The concept, in summary, is to encourage federal, state and local agencies to engage in privatization or public-private partnership transactions to monetize existing infrastructure assets in order to raise funds for other infrastructure investments.

Smaller P3 Projects: Approval Process, Public Funding and Transactional Issues
