Speech to the Sydney Fast Rail Conference

Congratulations to Sydney Business Chamber Western Sydney and Parramatta Council for organising today’s forum.

The discussion about the prospects for improved rail connections between the Sydney and Parramatta CBDs and the new Western Sydney Airport is a very important one. 

The Australian Logistics Council Annual Dinner is a very important event for a very important industry – and so I am delighted to be able to join you tonight.

Let me congratulate you on the range of issues you are covering in your 2016 Forum – of which tonight’s dinner forms part.

It is a pleasure to be here in Brisbane at this important Infrastructure Partnerships Australia lunch – marking the issue of the 15 Year Australian Infrastructure Plan.

I am very pleased to be here at the John Grill Centre at Sydney University for the official launch of the Better Infrastructure Initiative.

I am very pleased to join this Living Cities Workshop here at Parliament House.

I congratulate the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects for organizing this event – it is an important opportunity to exchange ideas about the future of our cities.

It is a pleasure to be with you at this important forum concerning healthy cities.

I would like to particularly thank the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria for hosting this summit.

Speech to the National Roads and Transport Congress

I am very pleased to join you for this important conference to discuss local roads and transport issues.

Under the dynamic leadership of Troy Pickard, the Australian Local Government Association is very much a thought leader in engaging with important public policy questions about how best we deliver road transport services to Australians – and the role of all three levels of government in doing that.

I am very pleased to join this important forum convened by the Transport Reform Network, on the question of ‘road pricing reform.’ Ten years ago I think it would have been very difficult to get a group of people together to speak about road pricing – other than to dismiss it with the observation that Australians would strongly resist the idea of having to pay for something that many perceive that they get for free.

Good morning, it’s a great pleasure to be here to speak at the Australian Government Libraries Information Network Conference: “Change, challenges and opportunities”.

I am very pleased to be here at the launch of this important report into Competition in the Financial Sector.
