Cities and infrastructure


Essential for the prosperity and productivity of all Australia, 2017 will see continued discussions on the CEDA stage about cities and infrastructure.

Australia’s cities are expanding and with this, the need to plan and build infrastructure and transport that can safely and reliably support the population, while also improving productivity and subsequently the economy. However, this requires significant investment and planning with input from a variety of stakeholders including Federal and state governments, business and industry as well as the general public. What is the best way forward?
