Northern Ireland Infrastructure Investment Conference 2020

agendaNi is organizing the annual Infrastructure Investment Conference, delivered virtually this year the conference will provide a valuable opportunity to bring together key stakeholders to gain insight into the key elements required to create sustainable 21st century infrastructure. Infrastructure investment is a key building block for sustainable economic growth and is a key element in the New Decade, New Approach deal. In the short term, it will provide much needed employment and in the longer term, investing in important infrastructure projects will be key to ensuring Northern Ireland’s ability to compete globally, enhance our connectivity and give us the potential to transform our economic future and enhance quality of life.

The New Decade, New Approach agreement has a new Investment Strategy that will cover all aspects of infrastructure: transport, water, health and education estates, and connectivity. This conference will provide an excellent opportunity to bring together the key stakeholders in developing and delivering Northern Ireland’s infrastructure to look at how the current challenges surrounding the economy and infrastructure investment and delivery should be addressed.
