Australia is a global infrastructure leader
Australia has a highly qualified infrastructure network and talent pool with comprehensive capabilities and significant expertise as a global infrastructure leader. This includes a long history and knowledge base of planning, developing, procuring, delivering, operating and maintaining quality infrastructure projects at national and subnational levels.
Recent and ongoing infrastructure projects in Australia have ranged from regional highway upgrades and energy initiatives to nation-building telecommunications reforms and greenfield airport developments. These projects have incorporated a focus on gender equality and social inclusion. Select examples are shown below.
Through P4I, Australia shares value with our partner governments and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) by leveraging Australia’s renowned reputation for high standards, refined assessment processes and accountability.
Australia’s contribution to Southeast Asian infrastructure
P4I builds on Australia’s longstanding support for sustainable infrastructure development in Southeast Asia – examples of which are shown in the map below.
As the region’s experience and needs have evolved, so too has Australia’s approach. We have transformed our partnerships from directly funding major infrastructure projects to becoming a trusted advisor that partners with regional governments to enhance infrastructure governance and outcomes.
Additionally, Australia’s flagship program for regional economic integration, the ASEAN-Australia Development Cooperation Program Phase II (AADCP II), has supported ASEAN to develop and implement key regional initiatives for connectivity, energy and infrastructure. These include:
- Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity (MPAC) 2025
- Initial Pipeline of ASEAN Infrastructure Projects
- Framework for Improving ASEAN Infrastructure Productivity
- Establishing Multilateral Power Trade in ASEAN
- ASEAN Sustainable Urbanisation Strategy
P4I brings together five diverse and specialised organisations, with each contributing unique and valuable expertise to P4I.
P4I’s integrated, cohesive team is founded on trust, cooperation, collaboration and our shared commitment to quality infrastructure development. This reflects the relationships we foster across the region, including among Australian and Southeast Asian government agencies.
P4I is supported by the Australian Government through DFAT. P4I’s leadership team comprises a Program Executive, a Program Management Group and Lead Advisers, who are supported by a broader team of specialists.
The leadership team guides P4I in striving towards our shared commitment to work with Southeast Asia to optimise the quality of infrastructure development and drive inclusive growth
