What is the GI Hub?
Launched by the G20 in 2014, the Global Infrastructure Hub has a mandate to grow the global pipeline of quality, bankable infrastructure projects.
By facilitating knowledge sharing, highlighting reform opportunities and connecting the public and private sectors, our ambitious goal is to increase the flow and quality of private and public infrastructure investment opportunities.
All countries, regardless of whether or not they are members of the G20, are able to work with the GI Hub. For more information please see our fact sheet.
How will we achieve our goals?
The GI Hub is developing a range of market-changing resources that will help to drive investment in the infrastructure sector. These will be launched on our website as they become available and will be free to access for the private, public and multilateral sectors:
independent data and analysis of the global appetite and opportunities for infrastructure investment and the specific blockages to infrastructure development;
a suite of guidance on leading practices that will enable governments to take projects to market faster and more cost-effectively; and
our ‘capability framework’, a tool to assess country level infrastructure environments;
a project pipeline to showcase investment ready projects to multilateral banks and private investors.
a knowledge platform for government procurement professionals to connect with international peers for advice and support;
How are we governed?
The Global Infrastructure Hub operates as an independent not-for-profit company under Australian law.
Our Board comprises representatives of advanced and emerging G20 countries: Australia, Japan, Germany, Argentina, Republic of Korea, the United Kingdom, as well as two independent directors. Australia chairs the GI Hub Board, represented by the Secretary to the Australian Treasury.
