Shane Jones off to Australia to look at PPPs
Infrastructure Minister Shane Jones is off to Australia to see how they draw in private funding for their large infrastructure projects. While the Government has ruled out Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) for schools, hospitals, and prisons, they are ‘‘open for business’’ for private investment in roads and other large infrastructure. Jones will visit Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. He’s a fan of a ‘‘one-stop shop’’ website for private business to see what projects are in the pipeline.
