About the 8th Indigenous Economic Development Forum

8th Indigenous Economic Development Forum, Developing the North, Northern Territory Governmane 

The Northern Territory Government is committed to developing the North and maintains that Indigenous socioeconomic development is central to the long term, sustainable growth of the Northern Territory’s economy.

Hosted by the Northern Territory Government, the 8th Indigenous Economic Development (IED) Forum is recognised as one of the largest Indigenous economic development events in Australia.

The forum will provide a platform to progress discussions held between Indigenous businesses and other stakeholders during the recently held Economic Summit series and Economic Development Framework. It will include a range of other existing and emerging economic opportunities. 

The forum will also focus on continuing to build on engagement with Indigenous Territorians and involvement with the developing Northern Australia agenda; and providing practical opportunities for Indigenous businesses to establish connections with other business entities that can lead to commercial opportunities, in particular procurement policies targeting Indigenous businesses.

The forum will be held at the Darwin Convention Centre on Monday 23 and Tuesday 24 October 2017.

The theme of this year’s forum is The North is our Economic Story.
