Unlocking the North's Potential

The Northern Territory Government is focused on unlocking the potential of Northern Australia through investment, trade, business and economic opportunities.

The Northern Territory’s investment potential was showcased at the Northern Australia Investment Forum in Cairns last month and was a great opportunity to showcase Northern Australia’s investment opportunities to an impressive and powerful international audience and connect investors with projects.

Australia’s leading defence officials and industry leaders converged in Darwin for the Northern Australia Defence Summit during October. Topics included innovation in the defence infrastructure industry, Northern Australia relationship with the Indo-Asia-Pacific region, cyber terrorism and Australia-America relations.

The 8th Indigenous Economic Development Forum was also held in Darwin. The event brought together a diverse range of delegates to discuss key strategies, policies and initiatives to support Indigenous economic development.

Northern Australia is critical to the prosperity and security of our Nation. The Developing Northern Australia Conference is an important part of keeping the conversation on Northern Australia and we look forward to seeing you in Alice Springs for next year’s Conference.
