Strong strategic leadership and collaborative working, founded in mutual trust and confidence are key to the success of the Strategic Alliance.
This philosophy extends from the collective recognition across the membership of the core purposes of this Alliance model which are that:
- Strategic infrastructure issues (and solutions) extend beyond any one single area.
- Issues that are common to one or more areas can benefit from a co-ordinated response.
- The need for stronger integration of investment by Government, its agencies, local authorities, as well as infrastructure and service providers.
- To push the case for investment through a single voice and at the right scale to have impact and success.
The Alliance Leadership shares a common aim, to look beyond current successes and:
- Address identified barriers to economic activity (both existing and planned growth).
- Raise productivity to match, and where possible exceed, that of our global competitors.
To achieve this requires the Strategic Alliance to:
- Strip away duplication, remove inefficiencies, enable faster, more agile decisions.
- Simplify funding streams wherever possible so that the time (and cost) taken to develop proposals and get them delivered on the ground is reduced.
- Provide greater certainty for private sector investors thereby encouraging them to commit sooner to investments with greater confidence.
