Maximizing Finance Development in Transport

Castalia worked with the IFC to help governments structure PPPs to attract private investment for transport infrastructure projects, by developing tools that would show them how to de-risk projects. Congestion and poorly maintained highways impact welfare and reduce opportunities for trade and economic growth. If governments don’t have the money to maintain and develop transport systems, countries will be affected by increasing congestion as urbanization rises.

Investigation Into Possible Anti-Competitive Impact Medical Association Practices, New Zealand

Castalia developed a methodology to distinguish between entry restrictions based on quality and those that created competition-limiting barriers. New Zealand’s Commerce Commission was concerned about the admissions practices of professional medical associations. It wanted to check whether they were reducing competition in specialist medical fields by imposing anti-competitive barriers to entry in the specialist fields.

Business Case and Transaction Advisory for Non-Toll Roads in Sumatra, Indonesia

Castalia prepared the business case and procurement documents for two non-tolled highways in East Sumatra. The Government of Indonesia wanted private investors to finance rehabilitation, expansion and maintenance of key links in the national highway network.

Ports PPP Feasibility Study, Ukraine

Castalia helped to develop a viable concession transaction for the Government of Ukraine for the Ports of Olvia and Kherson. Ukraine’s seaports play a key role in export and trade, and the Government intended to involve the private sector to improve the country’s port infrastructure. It needed help to secure a private partner for the country’s first private concession in the port sector.

Prioritization System for Capital Investments in the Water Sector, Mexico

Castalia developed a system to prioritize federal capital contributions to water projects in Mexico. CONAGUA (a federal water funding agency) lacked the tools to prioritize capital investment among the projects submitted by the 2,448 municipalities potentially eligible for such assistance. This led to sub-optimal selection of projects for support.
