The G20’s Global Infrastructure Hub has welcomed the Australian Government’s commitment in the 2017 Budget to building more infrastructure across Australia.

GI Hub Chief Executive Officer Chris Heathcote said the commitment in the Budget, with infrastructure projects including Western Sydney Airport, would help Australia address population growth into the future.

“Australia has one of the fastest growing populations in the western world, 90% of which is in the cities,” he said. “The message is clear, Australia needs to lead on infrastructure development to support growing cities and communities.”
