Electrification will lead to a shift from an agriculturally dependent low-GDP country to a manufacturing unit. Infrastructure investments lead to increased efficiency of business activities and reduces production and logistic costs.

Construction industry will benefit with the proposed infrastructural developmental projects.

With increased communications, the telecom industry is likely to witness tremendous growth in the country. The country’s improved infrastructure and energy efficiency is also likely to attract foreign investments. The increasing private investments by local and foreign bodies can be used to fund constructions or capital intensive industries like telecom in an electrified nation.

Logistic industry will experience monumental growth as logistic outsourcing will boom with the improved infrastructure.

- Such a massive infrastructural transformation will require an abundant labour force which is easily available within the country. Thus this project is likely to create jobs for the resident population. This leads to increased income and higher purchasing power.

Such high-expenditure government spending projects are often plagued with corruption. If corruption increases in the country, it may hamper the success of the project and not reap returns.

For a low GDP country like Amersberg, heavy investment in infrastructure may have negative short term implications on the prevalent agriculture-based economy as investment in the agricultural sector that currently fuels the economy would decrease.

Such projects are long-term in nature and generally do not reap returns instantly. This will bog down the economy in the short-run as the government does not enjoy any return on its investments in the short-run.

There also exists a risk of governmental changes in such long-term projects. If the ruling party changed while the project is underway, the new party may not approve of such high infrastructural spending and change the pattern of spending or even stop it all together. This will stop the infrastructural development and the country will not be able to reap any returns on its investments.

High infrastructural developments might also lead to increased property prices.

- With the infrastructure sector providing more jobs, the purchasing power of the working class will increase. This will lead to an increase in the supply of money in the market which will fuel an increase in the demand of consumer goods.

As infrastructure projects do not yield immediate results, the government will face a deficit in the short-run as the expenditures will surpass the income. However, in the long run, the infrastructural developments will yield positive results and stabilize the economy.

The government however plans to acquire the capital to fund this by increasing corporate taxation. This increase in corporate taxation will increase the cost of production for corporations working in such a condition. This leads to lower wages for employees and ultimately higher price of end products.

It would be very difficult to continue producing in such conditions in a perfectly competitive global market if the corporate taxes continue to remain the same in the countries where the competitors for the corporation function.

Now, considering that the country has become a member of ASEAN and goods can flow across borders without taxes, the manufacturing industry will be thwarted.
