Abstract

The World Economic Forum is an independent non-governmental organisation (NGO), committed to improving the state of the world. There are approximately 1500 member companies, including 50 from the architecture and construction sector. The Forum carries out annual surveys through its CEOs, enabling it in order to draw up its projects efficaciously; this paper presents the results of the last two. As well as examining the health of public finances, the chief problem likely to bedevil the construction sector in 2011, it also provides an analysis of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs), which are the most probable source of project funding in the near future, and discusses the importance of infrastructures and the use of cutting edge technologies for the sustainable development of the global economy.
