Integral Vision of the National Infrastructure
The National Bank of Public Works and Services (BANOBRAS) of Mexico is leading an initiative with the objective of strengthening the planning of infrastructure in the long-term and provide continuity to investment in the short term (2019-2020). To address this unprecedented challenge, whose aim is to increase the country’s competitiveness, the Deputy General Directorate for Infrastructure Promotion has called upon the services of IDOM.
A plan to define the infrastructure of the future
The National Development Plan (PND) is the main planning document in Mexico and is the basis of from which the different sector plans are developed. While there are cases of reference for the planning of infrastructure such as the National Infrastructure Program, the National Strategic Road Infrastructure Program (ProNEIC) or the ITS Strategic Plan, there are also several areas of opportunity, among which are: Long-term strategy – Intersectoral strategy – Homogeneous prioritization criteria – Short, medium and long-term portfolios – Transparency – Participation of public, academic and private sectors.
In this context, an exercise was carried out to build a Comprehensive Vision of the National Infrastructure (VIIN) that allows new development opportunities to be created, transversal to all sectors such as water, environment, communications and transport, energy, social and tourism, and that include contributions from public, private and academic fields. The proposal will also define a standard and consistent methodology to carry out the National Infrastructure Strategy (ENI) in the future.
