Javier Pérez Fortea, CEO of Globalvia, participated on Tuesday 9 April in the 11th Infrastructure Sector Meeting organised by ABC and Deloitte at the Casino de Madrid.

The event, entitled «Current situation and prospects of the Transport Infrastructure sector», was led by the Minister of Public Works, José Luis Ábalos. The leading private companies in the sector, including Globalvia, as well as state bodies that focus their activity in this field, participated in the meeting.

Javier Pérez Fortea participated in the panel discussion on the outlook for the concessions sector and opportunities for public-private partnerships. In it, Javier and the rest of the executives who accompanied him in this panel -Juan Osuna from Aleatica, José Aljaro from Abertis and José Antonio Labarra from Roadis- have expressed their opinion on the financing of Spanish highways. The CEO of Globalvia commented in this regard: «the toll road barriers should not be raised until the pay-per-use system is structured», an issue which has already been demanded by SEOPAN and which the Government acknowledges that it is studying.

During his speech, Javier Pérez Fortea also made reference to the liberalisation of passenger rail transport, announcing that Globalvia is already negotiating alliances to enter the market.
