August 10, 2023 | 0 Comments

KPMG is a co-title sponsor for the 7th Caribbean Infrastructure Forum [CARIF] 2023, which will be held at the Ritz-Carlton in Coconut Grove, Miami this September 18 – 19, 2023.

A spokesperson said, “As we move out of the pandemic, the Caribbean is experiencing a new urgency to finance and build economy-developing, resilient infrastructure which can handle both predictable and unpredictable climate, economic and health-related events.

“Although infrastructure can facilitate sustainable growth, how are island governments prioritising key projects, and how are governments and regulators creating an enabling-environment for sustainable growth? This also raises key questions about the options for investing, financing, and building the next generation of infrastructure across the Caribbean.

“In today’s market, CARIF is more essential than ever. This event provides a forum for tackling these challenging questions, exchanging ideas, and sharing lessons learned with respect to the future of investment in Caribbean infrastructure.”

Steve Woodward, Partner, Sector Lead KPMG Enterprise, stated ”We are delighted to be a co-title sponsor for the 7th CARIF event this year. The theme for CARIF 2023 is infrastructure as an enabler for sustainable growth across the Caribbean. We are pleased that the agenda will include:

  • Incentivising the flow of private finance to sustainable and resilient infrastructure projects along with building project pipelines;
  • Meeting the evolving infrastructure needs of the cruise tourism and shipping industries;
  • Understanding how waste-to-energy can address the Caribbean’s waste management challenges and how to build grid infrastructure for the future of the Caribbean power sector; and
  • Developing urban infrastructure to increase resilience, revitalize cities, and meet the need for affordable housing.

The spokesperson said, “This year will include additional opportunities for attendees to network and participate in topical roundtables and attend two additional workshops focusing on:

  • Sustainable finance: exploring sources, structures and innovations that could supercharge the delivery of Caribbean infrastructure; and
  • Creating and implementing effective national development strategies.”

Vicky Hitch, Senior Manager, Sector Lead for Infrastructure, Government and Healthcare at KPMG in Bermuda stated, “KPMG has a long-standing dedication to supporting island governments in enhancing their infrastructure for both the present and future. We are thrilled to host workshops which will consider, in detail, the important topics of sustainable finance and national development strategies. To add a global perspective and bring key learnings from a best-in-class lens, we are bringing our international subject matter professionals to act as speakers and facilitators throughout the event, including our Global Head of Infrastructure, Stephen Beatty; our Asia-Pacific Head of Infrastructure from Singapore, Sharad Somani; and our Global Head of Healthcare, Dr Anna van Poucke.”
