Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2014
20 ALC EVENTS ALC Members and industry stakeholders attended the fourth annual ALC/Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development Dialogue in Canberra in early February 2014. The Dialogue enabled members to directly raise issues of industry concern with key government stakeholders, such as progress on the heavy vehicle pricing and investment reform initiative, infrastructure financing, and implementing the national transport reforms. Discussions also focused on the outcomes of the December 2013 COAG meeting, which highlighted infrastructure financing and reforms as key government priorities. SENIOR EXECUTIVE BOARDROOM LUNCHES ALC’s series of Senior Executive Boardroom Lunches for 2013, sponsored nationally by Telstra, were a running success, with lunches held with senior ministers and shadow ministers right around the country. The lunches are designed to provide ALC Members with a seat at the table. 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 ministers. The events operated under ‘Chatham House’ rules, and were strictly limited in numbers to allow an in-depth discussion between Ministers and industry. ALC looks forward to building on this successful initiative in a new format that will strengthen the important dialogue that is constantly required between industry and government in 2014.
