In infrastructure privatization, arranging financing is as much an art as a science. At a recent conference in Washington, D.C., speakers discussed the opening of the public capital markets in 1992-93 for financing major operating infrastructure projects; currency risk; and the need for increased sponsor equity and other techniques. Officials of the World Bank and its International Finance Corp. arm explained the unbundling of a project's sovereign and corporate risks, the use of co-financing to attract capital, and the availability of insurance and export credits.
