International Construction December podcast

By Chris Sleight09 December 2014

In this month’s news we look at a statement by eight major multi-lateral infrastructure financers says a lack of viable projects, rather than the lack of finance is holding back development.

This month’s business section includes the news that Mexican billionaire has acquired a controlling stake in Spanish contractor FCC following an equity increase and an agreement with the former controlling shareholder, Spanish billionaire Esther Koplowitz.

We also look back at November’s Bauma China exhibition, and review some of the key news and equipment launches from the show.

Meanwhile, this month’s regional report looks at the construction markets of North Africa.
