Recent Hunter Function

On Thursday the 28th June, Professor Roy Green, Chairman of Port of Newcastle, delivered a compelling presentation on the rationale for a container terminal in Newcastle. The Port of Newcastle has capacity to more than double its operations of 4,500
vessel movements a year with a viable and competitive container terminal. The three stage development proposal would eventually see 2 million containers throughput capacity with significant savings throughout the import and export supply chains. Professor Greens’ presentation provided the audience of over 50 guests with confidence that with the right political support, the container terminal site could be under development within the next five years.

Next Hunter Function
The next Hunter Section function will be held on Thursday 9th August 2018. Anna Chau, the Executive Director, Project Advisory at Infrastructure Australia, will talk about the Infrastructure Priority List that will impact the future of Australia and the implications for the Hunter, especially the Hunter’s Logistics and Transport industry.

She is a leading applied economist in infrastructure with 27 years’ experience in a wide range of infrastructure sectors, including transport, water and waste, energy, law enforcement, justice, IT and the environment.
