CEF support call for Independent Infrastructure Advisory Body for NI
CEF has joined with ICE (Institute of Civil Engineers) to call on the NI Assembly to form an independent advisory body to identify strategic cross-sectoral priorities and to advise the NI Executive on investment decisions.
The economic benefit of investment in construction is recognised however the current mechanisms for prioritisation and delivery have left us with an infrastructure deficit and a lack of strategic long -term sustainable investment.
We firmly believe the current pressures arising from the Covid-19 crisis and the necessity to structure a meaningful recovery plan based on infrastructure investment makes this the ideal time to develop a clear, relevant and deliverable investment strategy for NI. The Report can be read here.
