Ministerial Statements

All of NAIF’s activities are focused on fulfilling its purpose and vision to transform northern Australia by accelerating the financing of infrastructure development that generates:

  • public benefit being broad based and ensuring benefits beyond those able to be captured by project proponents;
  • longer-term growth in the economy and population of northern Australia;
  • potential to encourage private sector participation in the financing of northern Australia’s infrastructure needs; and
  • sustainable Indigenous participation, procurement and employment.
