NAIF Strategy Overview

Transforming northern Australia through financing infrastructure development

NAIF Strategy Overview

NAIF’s strategic approach is designed to deliver on its vision for the benefit of all stakeholders. It is focussed on its ultimate function of delivering economic and population growth into northern Australia, NAIF tailors its strategy for originating infrastructure projects to maximise the impact that NAIF can achieve and to provide as much support as early as possible to bring that impact forward.

At the time of writing, the NAIF Act provides for the making of Investment Decisions up to 30 June 2021.

In accordance with its vision, NAIF’s focus is on accelerating projects through the NAIF assessment process as quickly as they are ready to proceed for investment decisioning within the period to that date.

The legislative review of operations, required under section 43 of the NAIF Act is currently underway and will cover among other things:

  • whether the time limit of 30 June 2021 for making decisions to provide financial assistance should be extended; and
  • appropriate governance arrangements for NAIF after that date.

NAIF will review its strategy once the outcomes of the legislative review is known.
