FINANCE GURU TO TACKLE INFRASTRUCTURE FUNDING CHALLENGE

REECE Edwards (pictured) vows to make a difference to the infrastructure sector in his new advocacy role.

The partner from financial advisory firm BDO is the latest addition to the Infrastructure Association of Queensland (IAQ) Board.

One of his biggest challenges at the infrastructure industry body will be finding new ways to finance infrastructure projects in a tough lending market.

“Whilst the private sector will be looked upon to contribute, governments also need to look at ways to leverage their balance sheets in this fiscally constrained environment to deliver the infrastructure that will keep our economy moving,” says Edwards.

“We need a significant and focused public debate about how we deliver projects to make sure infrastructure remains a priority for government at all levels.”

His previous experience includes public-private partnerships and project finance transactions involving utilities, railways, hospitals, toll roads, public transport and education facilities.
