Road investments in Latin America are at a turning point in 2019, supported by sectoral reform and macro-economic measures to lift barriers to internationa
trade and foreign investments. Mexico embodies this trend by recently announcing USD 4 billion in public and private funds will be spent on road infrastructure in 2019 - double the investment levels of previous years.
Against this backdrop, the 6th IRF Latin America Regional Congress & Exhibition provides a unique platform for road professionals to improve their understanding of the region's challenges, and embrace forward-looking policies and investments.
Mexico has come a long way in the development of a world-class national highway infrastructure program, supporting the government's economic and social objectives. It is therefore is a significant milestone and particular honor for Mexico to host the International Road Federation's 6th Latin America Regional Congress & Exhibition in our capital city.
