On 23 January 2017 the Australian Government launched the Critical Infrastructure Centre in response to the complex and evolving national security risks to critical infrastructure. The establishment of the Centre forms part of the Government's Critical Infrastructure Resilience Strategy. One of the initial tasks of the Centre will be to develop a Critical Infrastructure Register (to capture and track who owns critical assets). These developments are expected to have implications for inbound foreign investment in the infrastructure sector.
