NSW’s commitment to the Infrastructure and Construction Sector welcomed

Commitment to the Infrastructure and Construction Sector Welcomed

Media Release – 26th March 2020 – Infrastructure Partnerships Australia

The NSW Government’s continued commitment to the infrastructure and construction sector in the face of the ongoing impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has been welcomed by Infrastructure Partnerships Australia’s Chief Executive, Adrian Dwyer, and should be mirrored across the country.

“Today’s message from the NSW Government that it remains focused on the continued delivery of projects in response to COVID-19 is welcome news for a sector that continues to provide an essential economic service during these unprecedented times.

“As the policy response to COVID-19 rapidly evolves, the NSW Government has given confidence to the sector that it will remain flexible in the face of this crisis and continue to work cooperatively with its infrastructure delivery partners.

“Around $185 billion dollars of public funding is being invested in infrastructure projects across Australia over the next four years, providing a vital lift in economic growth.

“Maintaining focus on the pipeline of existing projects should remain a paramount priority for all governments delivering infrastructure projects across the country.

“While maintaining focus on project delivery to underpin the economy, we must also begin to focus on postcrisis mobilisation and planning for an infrastructure-led stimulus,” said Mr Dwyer.

Infrastructure Partnerships Australia is the nation’s leading infrastructure think tank, providing independent policy research focused on excellence in social and economic infrastructure.
