Event overview

An expanding national economy, growing population and increased trade have boosted demand for new public infrastructure – including transport, energy, water, health, education and other technical and social services that facilitate our urban society, economic productivity and liveability.

Just days after the state and federal budgets, join the Assistant Minister Jamie Briggs and business leader Diane Smith-Gander to gain insights into the project pipeline and how public and private sectors can harness Australia’s infrastructure potential.
