“Realizing The Transformative Power of The Western Region Development: Opportunities and Challenges”

LBR LBO INFRASTRUCTURE SUMMIT – REALIZING THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF WESTERN REGION URBAN AGGLOMERATION DEVELOPMENT

The Western Region Development Project will create a modern urban agglomeration. The challenges in designing and executing an urbanization project of unprecedented scope and scale are many.

1) Bridging the gap between “vision and action”
2) Rapid deployment of talent, ideas, and capital
3) Facilitating the deployment of cutting edge technology to build smart businesses and smart communities
4) Building institutional infrastructure (policy framework, friction-free inter-agency collaboration, political stability, quality of governance, and social infrastructure) that will induce investor appetite
5) Building and deploying innovative funding models and sources
6) Making the project climate positive
7) Positioning and marketing the country as a high potential investment destination
