FINSIA’s showcase of the inaugural draft 20-year Infrastructure Strategy is a perfect opportunity to network and learn, WA Regional Council Chair Wayde Keyser SF FIN says.
The limited availability joint event with the Property Council of Australia WA will give business leaders a picture of the long-term development plans for the state.
Infrastructure WA Chair John Langoulant is urging business leaders to examine the draft roadmap and make recommendations as they will shape economic activity up to 2042.
"It looks fundamentally at infrastructure needs that will drive social, economic and environmental outcomes for our State and provides the foundation on which future plans and strategies can be developed,” he said.
"It is the product of extensive consultation from around the State - a Strategy developed with the people of Western Australia, for the people Western Australia - and I would like to thank the community for their contribution and support throughout this journey.
"I encourage Western Australians to read the Strategy and its recommendations and consider how it can shape our State to 2042 and beyond."
Wayde said the event was an ideal opportunity for members - from YFPs to Senior Fellows - to get involved in conversations about the broader economy.
“These kind of events are really what FINSIA is all about,” he said.
“It’s a perfect chance for members, at any stage of their career, to network and get valuable insights at the same time.
“It’s at these kind of networking events where we can influence conversations on the way forward for the economy and help drive better outcomes for all stakeholders.
“And it shows FINSIA can play an important role in the discussion around the economic fabric of WA.”
Infrastructure WA, which was created in 2019, has made 88 recommendations on state-wide projects. Consultations run until September 15, 2021
