Better infrastructure critical for growth

November 1st, 2012

Better infrastructure critical for growth

The Building Infrastructure paper released today is an essential high level progress report for the Government's Business Growth Agenda, the Employers and Manufacturers Association says.

"The report is a lucid picture of our existing infrastructure assets and the Government's commitment to building more of them," said EMA chief executive, Kim Campbell.

"The excellent charts in it provide the extent of completion for each project underway which gives a useful progress benchmark.

"We are particularly pleased with the Prime Minister's invitation to business to engage with the Government on its initiatives, to recommend what we want to see more and less of, and what new initiatives we would like to see advanced.

"EMA will certainly take up this invitation."
