The Northern Territory Government is holding a series of economic summits across the Northern Territory in partnership with independent consultants Deloitte.
From the summits, the Northern Territory Government will develop long-term plans that provide certainty to the community and industry that have been fully tested and consulted on. This guarantees we are all moving in the same direction; that the public dollar being spent unlocks private sector investment.
Key topics being considered through this process include:
- creating jobs in the economy
- the right place to invest in infrastructure spending
- stemming the population outflow
- innovation in the Territory economy
- regional growth
- Indigenous economic engagement.
