- and bring together the private sectors of Australia, New Zealand, United States of America, Japan, France and other donor countries and the Pacific Islands Forum countries to facilitate connections to form joint ventures and employment of local contractors in the delivery of sustainable resilient infrastructure projects.
The speaker program includes representatives from major bilateral donor countries, multilateral donors, presentations by all Pacific islands countries on their infrastructure pipeline, examples of successful women in Pacific construction, the importance of ensuring proper procurement and construction standards, presentations by Pacific private sector peak bodies on each country’s workforce capabilities, and case studies by consultants and contractors on infrastructure projects undertaken in each country.
There is an extensive pipeline of donor-funded infrastructure projects planned in the Pacific islands countries over the short to medium term including the AUD4bn Australia Infrastructure Financing Facility for the Pacific (AIFFP).
In the current climate of financial stringency combined with the urgency of delivering infrastructure which is sustainable and climate resilient it is critical that projects are delivered to the highest standards to help protect the wellbeing of the Pacific islands countries all of which are currently challenged by the need for climate change adaptation.
