GICA membership continues to grow with four new members
Since hosting our annual meeting in January 2018, four additional members have joined the Global Infrastructure Connectivity Alliance. The new members include: Republic of Indonesia, The Commonwealth Secretariat, Long-term Infrastructure Investors Association, and the Maputo Corridor Logistics Initiative.
Republic of Indonesia
Currently, the Republic of Indonesia is involved in nine cross-border connectivity initiatives, including the Asia-Pacific Information Superhighway, the Belt and Road Initiative, and Trans-Asian Railway Network.

The Commonwealth Secretariat
Established in 1965, The Commonwealth Secretariat supports the 53 independent and equal sovereign states that form The Commonwealth, with a combined population of 2.4 billion across the globe. Among its core activities, The Commonwealth Secretariat works to create “better trade opportunities” in and across its member states.
Long-term Infrastructure Investors Association (LTIIA)
Founded by investors in 2014, the Long-term Infrastructure Investors Association “works with a wide range of stakeholders, including infrastructure investors, policymakers and academia, on supporting long-term, responsible deployment of private capital to public infrastructure around the world.” A non-profit international association based in Paris, LTIIA focuses its activities around:
- public advocacy and engagement with policymakers
- investment in research and innovation for the benefit of infrastructure investors
- education and training on long-term investing in infrastructure
Maputo Corridor Logistics Initiative (MCLI)
Based in South Africa, the Maputo Corridor Logistics Initiative, or MCLI, works to integrate, coordinate, communicate and facilitate development and ease of movement of freight along the Maputo Development Corridor (MDC) and to address bottlenecks to trade through a partnership between private sector users and public sector bodies on the corridor. Members include private sector infrastructure investors and service providers and stakeholders from Mozambique, South Africa, and the Kingdom of eSwatini (formerly Swaziland).
Join us in extending a warm welcome to our newest members, and stay tuned for more in-depth introductions in coming weeks.
