After months of deliberation, the US Senate passed the $1.2trn Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act on 10 August, a bill in the essence of President Joe Biden’s plans since winning the US election in November 2020.
The bipartisan bill will see $260bn invested in transportation and transit, $90bn in clean technologies, $84bn in water infrastructure and $100bn in digital infrastructure.
This webinar explored why US infrastructure is a long-term structural theme, which sectors looked set to benefit from Biden’s plan and the advantages of adopting a thematic approach.
