Autumn 2018 Update

Victoria’s strong pipeline of infrastructure projects is attracting growing interest from European infrastructure companies. For example, French company Bouygues established its first project office in Victoria to service the metro rail project. During the visit to France, Victoria’s Minister for Trade and Investment, Philip Dalidakis met with Bouygues as well as other companies to discuss Victoria's pipeline of infrastructure projects.

 

In March, the Victorian Government Trade and Investment (VGTI) office in London hosted a delegation from the North East Link Authority (NELA), including Corey Hannett, Coordinator General, Major Transport Infrastructure Program, and Duncan Elliott, CEO of NELA.

The program of calls provided an opportunity for the delegation to promote the NELA project to major infrastructure companies across the UK, France, Germany and Spain. The delegation also consulted with companies on best practice models for the tendering and delivery of large-scale infrastructure projects across Europe, as well as participating in site visits to some of the world's leading transport projects, including Crossrails in London.

  • The Victorian Government Trade and Investment office in London will continue to engage with key stakeholders at European infrastructure firms to facilitate investments into Victoria.
  • Significant investment in Victorian infrastructure projects leads to job creation for Victorians and supports the local economy.
