Projects listed for economic growth agenda

The government has listed 67 active infrastructure projects in its latest report on building a competitive economy.

Finance Minister Bill English says good progress has been made over the last four years in a growth agenda that stretches through to 2030.

"For businesses to invest in plant and facilities in New Zealand they need to be confident that they will have access to infrastructure that supports their businesses - transport, energy, water and telecommunications," he said on Thursday.

The Building Infrastructure report released on Thursday brings together all the projects which include:

* $12.2 billion for roading between 2012 and 2015

* $5b for the national electricity grid

* $1.6b for ultra-fast broadband and faster rural broadband

* $5.5b for rebuilding Christchurch.
