Civil Engineering Conference hits Sydney this week

The Asia Pacific’s top civil engineering talent will be in Sydney this week for the 5th International Civil Engineering Conference, in an event supported by the NSW Government.

NSW GovernmentTreasurer and Minister for State and Regional Development Eric Roozendaal said more than 500 engineers will converge on Darling Harbour including international delegates from China, Indonesia, Japan, India, Korea, Mongolia, Philippines, and Vietnam.

“International conferences like these bring the world’s top professionals to Sydney providing opportunities for learning, networking and benchmarking of industry best practice.

“As well as bringing prestige to our city, they also support our economy and jobs by bringing hundreds of delegates who spend money at hotels, eat at restaurants, shop at local retailers, hire taxis, and often extend their visits as tourists.

“These conferences are a valuable opportunity for the NSW Government to target business investment opportunities and promote the State’s strengths as an Asia Pacific business location to a captive and targeted professional audience.

Mr Roozendaal said the 5th International Civil Engineering Conference will discuss the role of civil and structural engineering in the 21st century and their contributions to business, infrastructure development and the community.

The theme for the conference is Innovative Community Building focusing on emerging civil and structural engineering innovations and showcasing civil engineering achievements that build communities, including here in NSW.

“Debate will touch upon a range of topical engineering issues including climate change and coastal management, water management, and sustainable infrastructure,” Mr Roozendaal said.

“The NSW Government’s $62.2 billion investment in infrastructure over the next four years will support up to 155,000 jobs a year and provide better public services and facilities including transport, roads, electricity, education, water and sewerage, health and housing.”
