Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2013
18 ALC/DIT DIALOGUE On 22 February 2013, senior members of the freight logistics industry and associated sectors gathered in Canberra for the third official ALC/Department of Infrastructure and Transport (DIT) Dialogue. This was the third such dialogue between industry and government facilitated by ALC and the Department of Infrastructure to stimulate discussion on key priorities for regulatory reform, infrastructure investment and safety. The focus of the ALC/DIT Dialogue 2013 was the National Land Freight Strategy, which is the federal government’s overarching strategy document aimed at improving freight productivity in Australia. Attendees at the dialogue provided input to the Department on industry’s priorities to improve productivity, efficiency and safety in the freight logistics industry. The Department is currently working with Infrastructure Australia to finalise the strategy and to develop a work plan for the Standing Council on Transport and Infrastructure (SCOTI) by May 2013. ALC’s Telstra Senior Executive Boardroom Lunch Series 2012–13 ALC’s series of Senior Executive Boardroom Lunches for 2012, sponsored nationally by Telstra, were a running success, with lunches held with transport ministers and opposition leaders in all states. Under the new, more exclusive format, the lunches attracted a selection of senior industry figures from ALC member companies, as well as a select number of government bureaucrats to join in the discussion with the minister. The events operated under ‘Chatham House’ rules, and were strictly limited in numbers to allow an in-depth discussion between ministers and industry. ALC hopes this new format will strengthen the important dialogue constantly required between industry and government in 2013. Lunches throughout 2012: • South Australia – Wednesday 11 April 2012 with The Hon. Pat Conlon MP, Minister for Transport and Infrastructure. • Tasmania – Tuesday 24 April 2012 with The Hon. David O’Byrne MP, Minister for Infrastructure. • New South Wales – Friday 3 August 2012 with The Hon. Duncan Gay MLC, Minister for Roads and Ports. • South Australia – Tuesday 28 August 2012 with Isobel Redmond MP, Leader of the Opposition. • Victoria – Tuesday 16 October 2012 with The Hon. Terry Mulder MP, Minister for Public Transport and Roads. • Western Australia – Wednesday 21 November 2012, with Mark McGowan MLA, Leader of the Opposition. • Queensland - Wednesday 20 February 2013, with The Hon Scott Emerson MP, Minister for Transport and Main Roads.
