Improving societal infrastructure quality and quantity is not only essential to the prosperity and well-being of the people, it is also a significant challenge for public policy.

"The state of the infrastructure of a society is crucial for its development; in effect, infrastructure must be seen as an engine of development, a procedural impact that represents well-being and reaches homes and people," said the representative director of CAF in Peru, Eleonora Silva Pardo, during the presentation of the report, while mentioning that the CAF has become the main source of financing for Latin America in terms of infrastructure.
