Australian infrastructure is at a tipping point. Policymakers are rethinking how and where they spend money, Infrastructure Australia is being overhauled, tolling systems are being reviewed, and new bodies like the High Speed Rail Authority and National Construction Industry Forum are being created to plan for the future.
This shake-up has created new challenges and prospects for businesses and investors in Australia. What are the government infrastructure priorities for the next five years and what projects will the reformed Infrastructure Australia prioritise? How can investors help cash-strapped governments build metros and renewable energy hubs? Is Australia making the right decisions on defence infrastructure as geopolitical tensions rise? Where will the money to build new homes adapted to a warming climate come from? How is technology revolutionising the way infrastructure is planned, built and maintained?
Join BAI at this dynamic two-day summit that brings together Australia’s top policymakers, chief executives and investors to debate how the priorities for infrastructure investment and planning have changed in 2023 and what the rethink means for the nation’s economic growth.
