In recent years, a growing emphasis has been given to the impact of infrastructure on economy, society and environment as well as to the sustainability of infrastructure projects. The Inter-American Development Bank, a major driver of infrastructure development in Latin America, has partnered with the China International Contractors Association (CHINCA) to advocate for sustainable development as a strategy to boost the comprehensive competitiveness of its members. With a shared vision to promote sustainable infrastructure, CHINCA and IDB will intensify collaboration and offer an impetus and guidance for Chinese contractors to invest in and undertake sustainable infrastructure projects in Latin America and the Caribbean.
