ANZSOG—Infrastructure Research Workshop

Date of Event: 17 September 2015

The Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE) supported an Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG) workshop on 17 September 2015 in Canberra to focus on future directions in infrastructural policy-making, particularly the importance of long-term planning and moving to a clearer connection between transport use and price. The focus of the workshop was on moving from theory to practice on these important issues of long standing.

The workshop involved presentations from leading thinkers in the field and included international case studies to stimulate discussion. It provided an opportunity to develop an agenda for governments and businesses that are grappling with the challenges of providing future transport infrastructure cost effectively.
