    CONNECTING THE HUNTER - TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE FOR THE FUTURE

    Transport infrastructure for the Hunter is in the news. The future of the port, airport expansion, improved road links and expanded rail infrastructure. They can build on the Hunter’s natural advantages and support a diversify and resilient economy.

    What opportunities does new and improved transport infrastructure bring to our region? What could it mean for your business or organisation?

    HRF Centre will present insights for the national and local economy, including the results of our unique Pulse Survey of local consumer and business expectations presented in our Hunter Region Economic Indicators.

    An expert panel will focus on transport infrastructure. Panel members will variously comment on what is happening locally, nationally, and internationally. They will highlight case studies and discuss the nature and implications of proposed local initiatives.
