The recognition by our Heads of State and Government of the importance of infrastructure to
support regional integration, and their direct engagement on accelerating the implementation of
regional infrastructure development, is a watershed for the region.
The keen interest and involvement of our leaders in accelerating the regional infrastructure
agenda has brought excitement, hope and inspiration to the Secretariat, stakeholders in Member
States, private sector and financing agencies.
This initiative will strengthen the ownership and involvement of Member States for cross-border
infrastructure development and implementation.
