Thank you for attending the event

FACCI was delighted to welcome you all to our first Industry Series Transport and Infrastructures of the year at Engineers Australia Sydney!

As we look at ways to accelerate economic growth and create the 30-minute cities of the future, the role of Faster Rail couldn't be clearer. Delivering quicker, more efficient and reliable travel times along strategic corridors linking our major capital cities and growing regional centres, Faster Rail brings people closer to jobs, healthcare, affordable housing and leisure, improving liveability and liveability for our growing population.

With all levels of government now focused on the role of Faster Rail in improving the connectivity of people and places, we brought together an expert panel to discuss:

·        the case for faster rail

·        the lessons Australia can learn from our global friends

·        the benefits faster rail can bring to current residents and its role in further establishing Australia as an attractive place to live and work on the world stage.

Thank you to our speakers: Romilly Madew, CEO of Engineers Australia; Geoff Roberts, Chief Commissioner of Greater Cities Commission; Alana Newbrook, CEO ANZ of Systra; Emily Trusler, Partner, Strategy and Transactions at EY and Philippe Vincent, FACCI NSW President. 

Thank you to all our guests for attending this event. We would also like to thank our Sponsors EY and SYSTRA, and our host Engineers Australia.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our next event!
