"We all know we have incredible infrastructure challenges here in the north," she said. "Investing in infrastructure and connecting businesses is fundamental to success. We must lower the costs and sow the seeds for business to be able to grow.

Identified projects could consist of airports, telecommunications, energy, ports, rail, roads and water.
