Monday, September 28 2015
Minister for Business Peter Styles congratulated the winners of the 2015 Chief Minister’s Northern Territory Export and Industry Awards announced at a ceremony at the Darwin Convention Centre on Thursday evening. The awards recognise outstanding achievements of NT exporters and industry leaders and promote the importance of international trade.
The evening would usually be hosted by the Chief Minister Adam Giles hoowever he has a reasonable excuse as his partner Phoebe Stewart was giving birth to a 9lb baby boy Robert. Another proud Territorian - welcome Robert.
Northern Territory winners progress as national finalists in the Australian Export Awards.“The Northern Territory Government continues to work collaboratively with the Chamber of Commerce, not just in supporting these awards, but to build our international trade relationships including recent delegations Timor Leste and upcoming missions to Guam, Japan, China and Taiwan.The Northern Territory’s international trade continues to experience strong growth. To March 2015, total exports of goods and services were AUD$6.5 billion.
For the same period, imports were AUD$4.0 billion making for a very healthy trade surplus.The Northern Territory’s primary export products continue to be oil and gas (dominated by LNG), mineral ores and live cattle and agricultural products" stated Minister Styles.
