Australia’s remarkable V-shaped economic recovery of early 2021 is facing a distressing reality check. The surge of the highly transmissible Delta variant of COVID-19 is forcing millions of Australians into rolling lockdowns and disrupting most sectors of the economy, including infrastructure and construction.

But demand for infrastructure is booming as investors snap up tangible assets while government spending on infrastructure projects is at an all-time high to stimulate the economy. What is the national cabinet’s infrastructure priority list? What is driving the boom in infrastructure investment and takeovers? What are the infrastructure needs for regional and remote communities? How is technology driving the delivery of next-generation infrastructure?

The Australian Financial Review Infrastructure Summit is Australia’s premier forum for government officials, industry experts, contractors, fund managers and investors to discuss the future of this asset class and the role of infrastructure in powering Australia’s economic growth and sustainability.
