Tom Hill, IPA International Infrastructure Analyst, reflects on IPA International Team's achievements through the Global Infrastructure Programme (GIP) over the past few years.
Much of the IPA’s work is about sharing our expertise, whether that be across UK government departments, with industry or overseas. To this aim, every six months the IPA delivers a five day training course for officials from overseas governments.
Foreign Office Minister Mark Field recently launched the Global Infrastructure Programme - a cross Whitehall initiative to help sustain economic growth through the development of economic and social infrastructure.
China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) recently joined the IPA for four days of training and policy dialogue.
The G20's ambitious plan to increase standardisation, improve project preparation and increase the quality of data available to investors is one the UK supports and is helping to deliver.
