Infrastructure underpins the competitiveness of the Australian economy – and importantly, our quality of life. Effective public transport, roads and logistics chains, as well as affordable and sustainable water, energy and telecommunications networks are the key to sustaining Australia’s prosperity in the decades ahead.
The only way to guarantee world class social and economic infrastructure is to ensure that we have the best policy and research to inform public debate and influence policy makers toward the best outcomes for the nation.
Infrastructure Partnerships Australia uses ground-breaking policy and research to drive the infrastructure debate and guide governments toward world best-practice in:
- National coordination and leadership in the identification and delivery of infrastructure projects;
- Legislative and regulatory reforms that ensure timely and cost efficient procurement of infrastructure assets;
- Greater use of private capital and superannuation savings to build key national assets – where appropriate;
- Managing the political risk inherent to major infrastructure projects;
- Development of stronger relationships between governments, the private sector, trade unions, environmental groups and the community, to support major infrastructure projects;
- Champion Federal Government leadership in developing workable, sustainable cities.
Major research is a core element of Infrastructure Partnerships Australia’s advocacy program. We are committed to providing Members and stakeholders with insightful, evidence-based, reliable and relevant information on infrastructure-related issues.
