Shane Jones off to Australia to look at PPPs

The Dominion Post - - Politics -

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.
