Infrastructure New Zealand is New Zealand's peak infrastructure body

Infrastructure New Zealand promotes best practice in national infrastructure development through research, advocacy and public and private sector collaboration. Members come from diverse sectors across New Zealand, equity owners, service providers, public sector agencies, and major infrastructure users.

Together we share a clear purpose; world class infrastructure for the benefit of all New Zealanders.

The Facts

World class infrastructure is central to our standard of living. The supply of water, energy, transportation, communications and social infrastructure underpin the quality of our health, education, agriculture, trade and commerce, personal safety and security, culture and entertainment.

Despite recent increases in infrastructure spending, New Zealand is lagging behind other OECD nations in redressing its infrastructure backlog. The latest IMD and World Economic Forum Global Competitive reports consistently show infrastructure constraints as major impediments to New Zealand’s social, economic and environmental development.

Four key challenges need to be addressed to provide for the essential national and regional infrastructure development that is so needed across New Zealand:

 Strong leadership and effective governance across and within infrastructure sectors

 Provision of coordinated long-term and national infrastructure development strategies  

 Reform of complex regulatory and environmental approval processes to recognise the importance of strategic infrastructure investment, and 

 Appropriate use of public and private sector debt as a means to finance infrastructure investment opportunities

Who is Infrastructure New Zealand?

Infrastructure New Zealand is supported by a board of 10 board members all of whom are industry leaders in their professional fields, assisted by a small, dedicated Head Office team.
