In Europe and Asia we have a lot of modern and clean transport systems in the main cities and this is beginning to be replicated in Central America and Caribbean with, for example, the construction of Line 1 of Panama Metro.

Q: Based on what you’ve seen in the last few years in Central America, if you look at the number and sophistication of infrastructure projects, how do you see this region growing for the next 10 years?
I would say not booming, but regularly increasing at a satisfactory rate. Why? Because the region would cope with the slowdown of developed countries mainly from Europe and other spots. However we have a deficit to make up for in infrastructure for such region, especially in energy and transport. We see many opportunities in the region in both areas. In Transport we are working for Line 2 of Panama Metro and interested in the possible future developments of main cities of the region, as Guatemala and San Jose. In Energy, we expect an increasing number of projects in renewable energies, as hydro, wind and geothermal.
