India Roundtable 2012
Welcome to the Project Finance International (PFI) Indian Infrastructure Roundtable, sponsored by L&T Infrastructure Finance Company. The event was held in the Taj Palace Hotel in New Delhi recently and followed on from the PFI Mumbai Roundtable event held last November.

Welcome to the Project Finance International (PFI) Gulf Power roundtable, held in the Dubai Capital Club in November as part of the Thomson Reuters quarterly Gulf capital markets roundtables series.
