The Australian and New Zealand Governments today launched the Australia & New Zealand Infrastructure Pipeline (ANZIP), developed by Infrastructure Partnerships Australia.
“The infrastructure pipeline will sustain the current high level of global focus on Australian and New Zealand infrastructure, right at the time that both countries need more investment and more projects,” said IPA CEO Brendan Lyon.
“ANZIP is part of a wider process by the Australian and New Zealand governments to increase global investment and domestic competition for infrastructure on both sides of the Tasman.
“Through New Zealand Deputy Prime Minister Bill English and Australian Treasurer Scott Morrison, I thank both governments for their strong support for ANZIP, which answers the call for a clearer pipeline of major infrastructure projects.”
“This world-leading, independent resource covers both greenfield and brownfield infrastructure from the early stages of a project or asset transaction, through to when a contract is awarded.
“This gives investors, contractors and others the kind of forward-looking pipeline of projects they need to be ready for major projects. “A common procurement market has been warmly adopted by both countries, because it’s a win-win.
“Australia and New Zealand are not competing with each other in infrastructure, we are competing together to maintain a global focus and investment on our domestic infrastructure.
“IPA has been pleased to partner with Infrastructure New Zealand and the Australian and New Zealand Governments to turn the ANZIP from an idea into a reality.”
ANZIP is a joint initiative between the Australian and New Zealand Governments – and Infrastructure Partnerships Australia – an independent infrastructure intelligence unit. www.infrastructurepipeline.org.au
