Italian transport and infrastructure companies are set to visit Australia later this week to explore investment opportunities, according to Transport Minister Anthony Albanese.

Albanese says
a forum will be held at Parliament House
to allow Australia and Italy to
scope mutual infrastructure investment.

The delegation will also visit Sydney and Perth to inspect a range of infrastructure projects and meet political and business leaders, including Infrastructure Australia.

Italian companies are already involved in delivering Australian infrastructure projects such as the South Road Superway in Adelaide and the Legacy Way Tunnel in Brisbane.

Australian firms are involved in the rollout of public transport ticketing systems in North Italy and project management for the construction of the Strait of Messina Bridge, which will connect the Italian mainland to Sicily.

Albanese says the Italian delegation will be the largest ever to visit Australia.

"This visit will deepen the ties between our two countries," Albanese says.
