What opportunities lie ahead for the sector?
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic there has been much discussion about an ‘infrastructure-led recovery’. Infrastructure can play a direct role in stimulating the economy and maintaining employment - there is ample evidence that well thought out infrastructure projects are a key enabler of productivity and economic growth.
However, there are significant challenges the sector needs to address including procurement, workforce availability, planning and RMA challenges, local government funding constraints and changes in demand.
In the latest report from our Rebuild New Zealand series we look at the opportunities for the infrastructure sector and how it can play a pivotal role in this country’s recovery in terms of both economic and social outcomes.
PwC has advised on many of New Zealand’s largest infrastructure projects spanning road and rail, port sector, communications and IT, healthcare, housing and other forms of social infrastructure. We have deep relationships with key stakeholders including central and local government. We pride ourselves on a focused partnership approach to our work in the sector, based on principles of trust, independence and challenging insight, using specialist teams tailored to specific client needs.
