1. Background

The Northern Territory (NT) stands out among Australian jurisdictions for its long-standing and innovative approach to international engagement. The NT Government was the first Australian government to create an Asian Relations portfolio, and has had success over many years in attracting major international investments which have contributed to economic growth, jobs, and the NT’s reputation as a place to live, work, invest and study. A strong, coordinated and forward-looking agenda for economic development and international engagement remains critical to delivering the NT Government’s commitment to growing jobs.
