Le Québec économique 6 : Le défi des infrastructures
International organizations are formal: all countries must invest more in infrastructure. The objective is to develop and maintain a network of advanced infrastructure to support economic growth. For developed countries, it is mainly a question of compensating for the ageing of infrastructures, sometimes more than a hundred years old. In Quebec, this challenge is particularly acute because of the simultaneous rehabilitation of many infrastructures built in the 1960s and 1970s. This sixth volume of the series Le Québec économique deals in depth with the various facets of the infrastructure challenge in the context of a slow-growing Quebec economy. After having established an inventory of the Quebec economy and infrastructure park, the book discusses the economic effects and financing of infrastructure, maintenance and prevention, public construction contracts, as well as technological infrastructures.
This book was written under the direction of Marcelin Joanis, Vice-President of Economic Development at CIRANO. Published by Presses de l'Université Laval (PUL), the book is available in bookstores or electronically.
