Advocacy and engagement update || July 2024

We are over halfway through the year already and it seems like the pace is picking up with various government programmes visibly gaining traction now. We saw the completion of the second three month period and Government action plan on 30 June with all but one of the action items completed. We also saw the launch of another list of actions for Q3, and while the media was on largely focused the actions dealing with law and order, the lion’s share of the initiatives were actually infrastructure related as the Government seeks to rebuild the economy.

Infrastructure as strategy

Estimating the Costs of an Uncertain Infrastructure Pipeline

Aotearoa New Zealand must gear up and build more
infrastructure to support a strong economy, social progress
and transition to net zero.

Underinvestment in our crucial infrastructure is one of our
greatest long-term economic challenges. New Zealand has
around $100 billion worth of infrastructure projects planned
and in its pipeline of upcoming work but this needs to more
than double over the next 30 years to meet our current
infrastructure deficit.
