How to spend it: Australia's infrastructure deficit

The business leaders at the G20 have focussed on infrastructure investment as critical to solving Australia's productivity problem. Here's where the needs are greatest.

The David Thodey-led B20 infrastructure and investment taskforce is advising the G20 on a $US57 trillion investment on global infrastructure by 2030. The projects, according to the taskforce, are needed to curb the $US3 trillion per year being lost in international economic growth each year due to a backlog in projects.

David Thodey, who is the coordinating chair of the taskforce as well as CEO of Telstra, says the focus is on reducing the infrastructure investment gap, which globally sits at $US1 trillion.
