The Australian Financial Review – in association with Deloitte – is pleased to announce the return of the National Infrastructure Summit – due to take place 4-5 June at the Sofitel Wentworth Sydney.

As populations continue to rise, Australia requires equivalent growth in social and economic infrastructure. But what funding mechanisms will support this long-life infrastructure? And what new projects can we anticipate in the coming years?

The Summit is Australia’s premier forum for government, contractors, analysts, and academics to hear Ministerial announcements, debate the outlook for urban regeneration and understand what shifting federal priorities mean for the project pipeline.

Once again there will be extended coverage from the AFR, as this hot-button issue continues to dominate public debate.
