Broad bipartisan support is a rare commodity today, but the need to improve America's flagging infrastructure is one of the few areas that enjoys support on both sides of the aisle. Such initiatives also require consensus on how projects will be funded and executed. This private session will explore:

  • What financing models can address the challenges in U.S. infrastructure without leaving taxpayers on the hook?
  • How is the Administration forging long-term partnerships with both investors and firms that are capable of carrying out these projects?
  • What current and emerging disruptive technologies can change the cost structure of major infrastructure projects?
  • How can we address the roadblocks to turning today's big infrastructure ideas into tomorrow's job-creating realities?
