Join us for an evening reception as we discuss Australia's infrastructure pipeline, the welcome challenge of continued population growth, and the related market opportunities.
With Australia’s booming population officially hitting a record 25 million people in August, a decade earlier than forecast, the country is looking to a strong infrastructure pipeline to ensure a high quality of life for its citizens.
The Australian Government has committed more than A$75 billion (£41.4 billion) over the next 10 years in spending on infrastructure projects, with Victoria and New South Wales leading the country in infrastructure investment. From Victoria’s ambitious ‘Suburban Rail Loop’ proposal looking to link every major rail line in Melbourne, to New South Wales’ revolutionary Western Sydney ‘Aerotropolis’ project set to establish 200,000 new jobs and a 24-hour economy set around the new Western Sydney Airport, it is evident major cities are looking to build better infrastructure and invest in the future of Australia. Speakers include: Adrian Dwyer, Chief Executive Officer, Infrastructure Partnerships Australia (keynote), David Rawson, General Manager – Client Coverage and Corporate Finance, Europe, National Australia Bank (moderator) Andrew Rose, Chief Executive Officer, Global Infrastructure Investor Association
