New Horizons - Infrastructure Market Capacity Report

Join our second New Horizons webinar for the year to hear from Peter Colacino, Chief of Policy and Research from Infrastructure Australia who will discuss the findings of the Infrastructure Market Capacity Report.

The Infrastructure Market Capacity Report reveals a surge in demand for skills, labour and materials due to the rapid increase in public infrastructure investment and underscores the need for Australia’s governments and industry to work collaboratively to advance sector-wide reform.

“The challenge of driving a step-change in infrastructure productivity and innovation is a shared one – it cannot be solved by governments or industry alone,” Mr Colacino said.
