The strategy should promote a strong and dynamic private sector that will contribute to long-term economic growth and sustained poverty reduction. The Bank has engaged CRISIL Infrastructure Advisory to identify the specific legal, policy, regulatory, financial, project development and other issues that are impeding faster growth of private investment in infrastructure.
