GIIA has joined the US National Governors’ Association Advisory Panel on Infrastructure which was launched at the recent 2019 NGA Summer Meeting held in Salt Lake City.
During the Summer Meeting incoming Chairman, Governor Larry Hogan (MD), announced a year-long initiative ‘Infrastructure: Foundation for Success’ aimed at helping Governors and State leaders solve State’s infrastructure challenges with a focus on bridges, roads, airports, railways, energy, water and broadband.
“Modern and well-functioning infrastructure is vital to a prosperous economy, public safety and quality of life for all Americans,” Gov. Hogan said.
“Through my NGA Chair’s Initiative, Infrastructure: Foundation for Success, America’s governors will build on their record of leadership to explore solutions that ensure that America’s infrastructure is responsive, efficient and safeguarded against cyber threats. Governors are dedicated to finding better ways to move people and goods and provide energy, water and communications services.”
GIIA Director of Corporate Affairs Jon Phillips said:
“GIIA is pleased to be supporting the NGA Chair’s Initiative focused on supporting States to provide the innovative and efficient infrastructure that is needed.”
“GIIA members own and operate more than 100 US infrastructure assets and through our relationship with the NGA we hope to play a key role in helping States unlock private investment to deliver the modern infrastructure vital to the needs of current and future generations.”
As a member of the Advisory Panel, GIIA will work with the NGA on events both in the United States and abroad. Members wishing to become more engaged in GIIA’s work with the NGA should contact Jon Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org
