Future Infrastructure: Private Investment discussion paper

Closed 20 Jul 2023

Opened 23 Jun 2023


Investment in infrastructure unlocks, focusses and accelerates growth in key industries. It builds the liveability and prosperity of our communities for generations to come. The Queensland Government has a clear ambition to capitalise on new, innovative and more collaborative approaches to address our State’s infrastructure needs.

In June 2022, the Department of State Development, Infrastructure and Local Planning released the State Infrastructure Strategy, which includes an action to set priority infrastructure investment opportunities.

The Future Infrastructure: Private Investment (FIPI) discussion paper brings together opportunities for private sector investment and highlights Queensland Government infrastructure strategies to promote investment opportunities. Following an in-depth consideration of the future of Queensland’s infrastructure landscape, three key themes were identified – decarbonisation, circular economy and connecting our regions.

This discussion paper identifies:

  • specific infrastructure investment opportunities that:
    • have strong potential and private sector investment interest, and
    • support key Queensland Government priorities (e.g., growing our future economy)
  • government levers and support mechanisms available to facilitate private sector investment in infrastructure.

You are invited to have your say on the discussion paper. Your feedback and insights will help guide the development of a single point resource to support and drive private investment in Queensland’s infrastructure.
