News from the Global Infrastructure Initiative: February 2024

Must read

The publication of this article collection coincides with our 9th GII Summit, which will take place in Dubai from February 27 to 29, 2024.

This year has been off to a busy start as we prepare for our upcoming summit, which focuses on the theme of accelerating progress on future-ready infrastructure. With increasing consensus that infrastructure needs to digitalize and decarbonize, the question is how the industry can move faster than it has ever had to before. To accelerate the pace, the global infrastructure and projects sector will need to embrace new technologies and ways of working, develop talent and the workforce of the future, and debottleneck financing, materials, and supply chains.

The Dubai Summit—our first ever in the Middle East—tackles these themes with more than 250 C-level executives across the full asset life cycle and all infrastructure sectors. Our program features two and a half days of site visits to innovative infrastructure projects, interactive plenary dialogue, roundtables, and networking. Look for our recap report on the summit’s best ideas and takeaways, which will be published in April.

The new year also brings a slate of other GII gatherings. For example, our first roundtable of the year brought together leaders from Europe’s roads sector and related value chains for a look at the mobility landscape and a solutions-focused discussion on how road infrastructure is changing and will need to continue changing in years to come. A recap of that roundtable will be available soon on the GII website, and stay tuned for additional events throughout the year.

As ever, we welcome your input on GII’s offerings and the topics and themes that are shaping the future of infrastructure and capital projects. If you have an idea for an event or article, please let us know at GII@McKinsey.com.
