‘Statement of Ambition’ Launched by ACT Chief Minister

We had a great turnout yesterday for the ACT Chief Ministers State of the Territory Business Address where Chief Minister Andrew Barr launched the ACT Government’s Statement of Ambition for the Canberra region. Mr Barr said the Statement outlines a clear trajectory to deliver a compact and competitive Canberra for all.  The statement was developed in partnership with one of the world’s leading policy makers on urban regeneration and city development, Dr Tim Williams.

It is a key account of what is to come next for Canberra: winning the global contest for investment and talent – opening and diversifying our knowledge-based economy – better metropolitan infrastructure – and integrated smart-city initiatives.
