Global Infrastructure Initiative

Convening the world’s most senior leaders in infrastructure and capital projects to identify ways to improve the delivery of infrastructure and get more out of existing assets.

Our approach is to stimulate change by building a community of global leaders who exchange ideas and find practical solutions to improve how we plan, finance, build, and operate infrastructure.

Our research suggests up to 40 percent of global infrastructure and capital project investment is poorly spent because of bottlenecks, lack of innovation, and market failures. McKinsey established the GII to address these issues, promote economic growth, and contribute to more resilient and secure communities.

GII has hosted three successful summits and dozens of regional roundtables worldwide. GII disseminates the best insights and practices from around the world through Voices on Infrastructure, and shares a collection of tools. GII also hosts innovation site visits, demonstrating some the industry’s most exciting projects, new approaches and technologies.

Our intent is to create a platform that inspires senior leaders to exchange ideas and help advance much-needed change in the approach to capital projects and infrastructure globally.

The world’s leaders in infrastructure and capital projects convened in Singapore for the fourth GII Summit on May 24-26, 2017. Themed around “New Solutions for Global Infrastructure,” the Summit explored the latest data, global best practices, and innovative approaches in the 21st century.
