Romania should invest USD 237 billion overall in infrastructure by 2040, but it will invest only USD 226 billion if the current spending trends continue, according to a report the Global Infrastructure Hub (GIH) published on Tuesday. This will result in an investment gap of USD 11 billion.
Romania needs to invest USD 62 billion in energy infrastructure until then, but it will invest only USD 57 billion based on the current trends, leading to a gap of USD 5.8 billion.
As for the water infrastructure, the country should invest USD 18 billion by 2040. However, the gap could amount to USD 3.9 billion if the current trends are maintained.
Romania could also record a significant investment gap in the railway infrastructure sector. The investments should reach USD 10 billion, but the country will probably invest only USD 5.9 billion. The gap would thus amount to USD 3.6 billion.
