Infrastructure Partnerships Australia was launched in December 2005, answering the call from industry and Australia’s governments alike for a new approach to meeting national infrastructure challenges.
Launched in NSW by Premier Morris Iemma and in Victoria by then Treasurer John Brumby – Infrastructure Partnerships Australia drew together more than 100 of the nation’s most senior public and private sector Chief Executives to begin the process of mapping out the road map for a new approach to meeting Australia’s infrastructure challenge.
With a burgeoning Membership and increasing public profile, the Australian Council for Infrastructure Development (AusCID) - the incumbent infrastructure body - voted to amalgamate with Infrastructure Partnerships Australia in September 2006 providing a unified voice advocating the best solutions to meet national economic and social objectives.
Under the leadership of our Chairman, the Hon Mark Birrell, Infrastructure Partnerships Australia has quickly established itself as the united voice for the public and private sectors in the national infrastructure debate.
From its inception, Infrastructure Partnerships Australia has grown rapidly to establish itself as the nation’s peak infrastructure body.
