Infrastructure is transforming. Presenting Australia with the challenge to revitalise and stay competitive, and the opportunity to build jobs and fuel prosperity.
Infrastructure funding is evolving and will continue to do so. The global trend for governments to seek private-sector involvement in projects rather than go it alone is set to grow, as will participation by funds dedicated to specific kinds of infrastructure – water, for example. And high-growth economies such as Russia, Brazil, China and India may continue to consume an increasing share of world investment capital.
The key to raising enough investment for tomorrow’s essential infrastructure will rest in finding the optimum balance between public and private investment.
