  • Author(s): Northern Territory Government,
  • Published: 2013

Abstract: The Northern Territory Government is committed to strengthening the Territory’s economic base through growing a three hub economy based on mining and energy, education and tourism, and food exports. Opportunities to participate in these sectors exist in many parts of the Territory including regional and remote areas. The principles underpinning this strategy are: Embed Indigenous economic development within overall Territory development strategies and encourage greater Indigenous participation at all levels of the economy Emphasise collaboration and partnerships at all levels and across all sectors and work with Indigenous Territorians to develop programs and actions that operate effectively in ‘both worlds’ Be flexible, adaptable and innovative and seek long term structural changes and sustainability as well as short term gains such as greater returns to community, strengthened leadership and governance Promote entrepreneurship, self-reliance and resilience at individual, family and community levels Collect and share relevant evidence and regularly review policy and programs in light of this evidence.
