Australia is boosting its support for infrastructure development in the Pacific and Timor Leste through a $2 billion infrastructure initiative - the Australian Infrastructure Financing Facility for the Pacific (AIFFP). The AIFFP will use grant funding combined with loans to support the development of high priority infrastructure such as telecommunications, energy, transport, and water. The Facility will be managed by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and will be operational by July 2019.
DFAT is inviting members of the public, business, civil society and academia to have their say on the design of the AIFFP. Submissions close 11 March.
