WASHINGTON, DC, June 23, 2005 -- CG/LA Infrastructure LLC has released its latest monthly Project Analytics report with a focus on "An Emerging Water Paradigm; Finally Addressing the Issues -- Peru's Program."

The Inter-American Development Bank plans to catalyze growth in private sector participation in Peru's water and sanitation sectors. Initial funding is set at US$97 million -- and designed to cover the soft costs supporting nearly US$500 million in total investment. The project offers a series of business opportunities to the private sector including 45,000 kilometers of new pipes, and 5 new wastewater treatment plants. Tumbes, the first concession, will be offered on July 11th- and 'if that goes well, we are in good shape,' according to one official.
