Internationalization of infrastructures
Infrastructures are more and more interconnecting at the continental scale, operated by multinational companies and under the regulatory control of international bodies. All these facts, and many others, relate to the internationalization of infrastructures. We will address this theme at the 12th Annual International Conference on the Economics of Infrastructures. We have invited leading experts from academia, business and politics to discuss it and provide their views for the way ahead. We will raise issues related to supranational regulation, technical coordination across borders, international economic exchange, converging national interests and international public service obligations. We hope to come with a specific understanding of how the internationalization of infrastructures results in a stronger interdependence of market mechanisms, technological and national systems.
