RDA Hunter (New South Wales) Executive Officer Todd Williams will be presenting a key note address on Infrastructure Integration and Economic Development in the Hunter Region at the annual Committee for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA) conference on Wednesday 5 September 2012.
Mr Williams will discuss how RDA Hunter proposes to attract investment to the region and maintain a sustainable future. He will outline the Joint Planning in Progress Group’s plans to ensure a liveable and productive region, and discuss the steps required to implement the RDA Hunter’s Urban Planning for the Hunter’s Future paper.
The conference will address the economic drivers for the Hunter region and discuss public policy to alleviate constraints on the diverse sectors that operate in the region.
The program will commence with a pre-conference dinner on Tuesday 4 September with a keynote address given by Hennie du Plooy, Chief Executive Officer of Port Waratah Coal Services.
The conference program on Wednesday 5 September will examine:
• state and Australian Government relations crucial to infrastructure planning and delivery
• Newcastle—driving sectoral diversity to create a leading global and sustainable city
• responding to demand—examining how export, passenger and freight infrastructure will need to evolve
• building a social and knowledge capital—the makings of a global city, and
• energy innovation—positioning the Hunter as a leader in traditional and new power sources.
