The following article written by Gibson Dunn partner Jose W. Fernandez appeared in a recent issue of Foreign Affairs, published by the Council on Foreign Relations. It argues that the infrastructure boom in emerging markets is one of the most promising business opportunities of our time, and that for commercial and strategic reasons Washington needs to do more to help American companies take advantage of the opportunity.
Mr. Fernandez recently joined the firm’s New York office after serving for nearly four years at the State Department, where he was appointed Assistant Secretary of State for Economic, Energy and Business Affairs in 2009.
