Australia is at the forefront of the constantly evolving standards in the international infrastructure, building & construction industry accounting for nearly 7% of the Australian GDP, and employing 9% of the workforce.
According to Peter Linford, Senior Trade Commissioner – South Asia, Australian Trade Commission, "Australia has unique experience in building and construction projects driven by the country’s self-sufficiency in managing complex projects on account of its vast geographic spread; harsh environment and varied terrains and climatic conditions."
"Australia is also at the forefront of sustainable green building starting its journey towards becoming a green building nation in 2000, when Sydney hosted the world’s first ‘green’ Olympics. Australian architects and engineers are playing a major role in helping to shape the sustainability credentials of the Commonwealth Games 2010 in New Delhi. Infrastructure and construction are the key drivers for India’s growth, and Australia can provide value added competitive solutions and expertise. There are tremendous opportunities for joint ventures, collaborations, technology transfers, investments and tie ups between Australian and Indian companies in this sector", said Peter Linford.
