Infrastructure

Adequate economic infrastructure is critical for business to drive sustainable economic growth. Business SA was a strong public proponent of the soon to be constructed Northern Connector project and is working hard to foster progress of additional infrastructure required by South Australian business. As part of this campaign we are channelling infrastructure ideas from member businesses through an expert panel involved in infrastructure delivery.

Agriculture and associated food & beverage manufacturing are both major drivers of South Australia’s economy, particularly exports. To ensure these sectors continue to grow, Business SA is lobbying both the State and Federal Governments to allocate funding towards the Northern Adelaide Irrigation Scheme (NAIS) to open up approximately 3,600 hectares on the Northern Adelaide Plains for intensive horticulture and livestock production using treated wastewater.
