The network is based on national and interregional land corridors, which are essential for national and regional economic growth and connectivity. The AFN supports the implementation of infrastructure projects and defines how the Australian Government and the states will cooperate to deliver infrastructure projects for the benefit and well-being of Australians. By the end of the AFN on June 30, 2019, the initiative is expected to provide $2.3 billion to participating jurisdictions and release more than $15 billion in additional economic infrastructure. Investment in additional infrastructure supported an increase in economic activity through increased construction activity and job demand. The Australian Government has put in place an Indigenous Participation Framework that will apply to new road and rail projects under the new ANA. . . .
