Interest in Irish infrastructure projects shows strength of Ireland’s economic recovery – NDFA
A surge in international interest among investors in Irish infrastructure projects is a welcome sign of Ireland’s economic recovery, according to the chief executive of the National Development Finance Agency (NDFA).
NDFA chief executive and National Treasury Management Agency (NTMA) director Brian Murphy said there has been a strong rebound in the number of international groups seeking to invest in Irish infrastructure projects on the back of improved sentiment and greater confidence about the attractiveness of the Irish economy.
Murphy was speaking at a conference for investors in major Irish infrastructure projects – ‘Financing Irish Infrastructure’ – which is taking place in Dublin today.
“There has been a major transformation in appetite for Irish assets and Ireland has a healthy pipeline of quality infrastructure projects to meet this appetite,” he said.
“Investors – both domestic and international – are now actively targeting Ireland for major financing, construction and supply chain opportunities.”
Murphy said the NDFA is currently involved in nine live projects in the education, courts, health and transport sectors. He said multiple experienced consortia submitted formal expressions of interest in completing each of these projects.
