The Hub's Morag Baird was on the panel discussing A global outlook for Infrastructure investment.

 "It was my pleasure to represent the Global Infrastructure Hub in a panel discussion on the global outlook for infrastructure investment at the Australian Financial Review, Infrastructure Summit in Sydney on 4 June 2018, along with other panellists from Brisbane Airport, Ausgrid & Citi Group, Moody’s, Norton Rose Fulbright and the Macquarie Group.  The discussion revolved around growth markets such as highlighted in the annual Global Infrastructure Hub/EDHECinfra investor survey and the role of some of the largest economies such as the USA and China in addressing the global infrastructure gap."

  • The role and effectiveness of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank
