The country has clearly come a long way with the biggest expenditures having been devoted to improving roads, power, rail and the country's water supply. That development is shaping growth patterns throughout the country and influencing location decisions for both national and multinational firms. To date, the focus of much of that infrastructure investment has been on coastal cities. However, since the post-global financial crisis stimulus in 2009, inland areas are beginning to get a bigger share of that infrastructure investment.
