The trucking industry will soon learn what the Rudd Government has in store for it with the announcement that Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Anthony Albanese will be delivering a speech during the 2008 Australian Trucking Convention.

Due to be held over three days in Canberra, the convention will address issues ranging from sessions on fatigue, emissions trading, safety and regulations.

Australian Trucking Association CEO Stuart St Clair says Albanese will outline the Rudd Government’s approach to infrastructure planning and implementation.
"Mr Albanese will brief delegates on the emerging progress of the Infrastructure Australia Council, the National Infrastructure Audit and the roll-out plans for the Government’s road infrastructure projects," St Clair says.

"It will be an opportunity for delegates to become familiar with the plans of the new Australian Government and learn how those plans will ultimately affect the industry."

The convention, which will run from May 27 to May 30, will be themed around sessions focusing on how the transport industry can be prepared for, and adapt to, regulatory changes to be implemented this year.

"The convention is an ideal opportunity for all of the elements that form our industry to engage on current issues and collectively se the agenda for the future," St Clair says.
