Infrastructure Symposium QUT 24 June 2015

Engineers Australia Queensland and The Royal Society of Queensland are hosting a symposium to encourage public debate about the need for new public infrastructure on issues such as:

  • the need for a transparent process, independent of political campaigns, by which project proposals are conceived, aligned with planning objectives and assessed;
  • the need to include sustainability and energy security considerations in benefit-cost analyses for infrastructure projects;
  • the need to evaluate competing demands on public funds objectively so that the broader foundations of economic activity – infrastructure defined broadly – are adequately resourced.
