The National Infrastructure Summit (1)


Infrastructure Summit 

16th May 2023
Croke Park, Dublin

It is a pivotal time for infrastructure investment and development in Ireland. With the rising costs of capital, labour and materials causing major delays and tipping some businesses over the edge. Continued open dialogue between governments, industry and investors is critical to funding and delivering fit-for-purpose infrastructure for the future. 

With the National Planning Framework and the National Development Plan 2021-2030 combining to form Project Ireland 2040, the road map to deliver the infrastructure required has been set and despite challenges, infrastructure assets remain attractive to investors amid the uncertainty.

But where are we up to? And how can we be agile to Ireland’s evolving infrastructure needs to effectively plug the gaps? 

Despite the ambitions for more roads, train connections, green buses and broadband, the need to refine and improve procurement models remains. Delivery without delays and cost overruns is paramount to being where we need to be in 2040.  

The Government has introduced reforms that will help ensure the effective delivery of Project Ireland 2040 on time and continue to review procurement criteria to achieve maximum value for money through competitive procedures. But can more be done to keep us on track?

At the National Infrastructure Summit 2023, Government officials, key infrastructure contractors, fund managers and investors will come together to discuss the road forward and reflect upon the learnings to date from major projects.
