Abertis CEO Is Cool on P3s in the States, Cites PA Turnpike, Chicago and ITR Experiences

CNBC posts a Q&A interview with Abertis CEO Francisco Reynés Massanet, who is somewhat jaundiced about the excitement swirling around the Trump infrastructure plan. Massanet tells CNBC, “We tried to come into the States 10 years ago with a big infrastructure, which was the Indiana Toll Road, and after having won the bid, for whatever reason, the governor decided not to go ahead. Then we tried again in some attempts in Chicago, in Pennsylvania, but what happened is that finally it’s difficult, because the American market is a very difficult market, although it really requires PPPs as a way to boost the lack of infrastructures.”
