Mexico’s infrastructure competitiveness ranking has dropped from 57 to 62, with the ranking of its railroad, port and air transport infrastructure suffering the most. With low federal budgets, there are many projects yet to be completed and as a result the government began creating new financial vehicles and structures to boost investment. This panel will bring topics such as Right of Way, PPPs and regulatory framework issues to the table to create solutions that will help boost Mexico’s transport infrastructure.

During election year, public infrastructure is known to take a back seat while the new administration develops its National Infrastructure Plan. During this time, many companies look to diversify and develop projects for the private sector, especially real estate. Monterrey, Guadalajara, Mexico City and Queretaro have grown substantially in terms of real estate, but what about emerging cities such as Merida and Tijuana. What role and responsibility do developers have in creating new economic hubs and what role will the decentralization of government entity offices play?

Smart Cities and IoT are buzzwords taking over the infrastructure industry. The challenge lies in adapting the technology to Mexico’s policies, infrastructure and most importantly budgets. The Telecommunications Reform and the Shared Network will provide the country with the backbone for connectivity, but how can real estate developers, technology providers and infrastructure developers work together to not only create smarter buildings and assets in Mexico, but keep them safe?

"People make cities, and it is to them, not buildings that we must fit our plans" - Jane Jacobs. The exponential growth of Mexico’s cities has many side effects on citizens. Traffic, expensive housing, pollution and insecurity are some of the issues impacting the quality of life throughout the country. How can urbanists, water and waste infrastructure, real estate developers, transport infrastructure and governments create viable solutions for its cities, and not replicate the same mistakes of Mexico City?

Water is known as Blue Gold for a reason and Mexico’s most populated areas are running out of it. This is a problem that affects the entire population, not only by generating thirst but also raising costs for cities, developers and end users. The technology is available to make the best out of the water resources but the question remains focused on how each authority decides to use it and transform its investments in water infrastructure to put money back into their pockets.
- SpeakerMarcos Orduña AlcocerNational Vice President of CMIC
