Within this space, the USD25bn 4G Highway Concession Programme will be the largest benefactor of innovative financing and PPPs. Projects continue to move forward under wave three of the program, with the USD648mn Pacifico 3 reaching financial close in March and Pacifico 2 reportedly close to doing so.

International capital will play a crucial role, helping to complement the domestic banking industry and bolster financing availability. In Q116 Goldman Sachs joined the ranks of the major international lenders supporting the 4G programme, with Brazil's Itau reportedly set to follow suit.

The creation of new infrastructure funds will further diversify Colombia's financing sources, reducing the risks associated with the financing stage of the project cycle. This will be critical for maintaining the flow of funds given that the Colombian economy is facing numerous challenges - namely the low oil price environment, a weak peso, and the ongoing peace process.
