Defence Advocate to fight for Territory jobs
Chief Minister Michael Gunner today announced the appointment of a former senior defence official, Air Vice Marshal Margaret Staib, as the Northern Territory’s (NT) first Defence and National Security Advocate.
Ms Staib’s role will be to position the Territory to benefit from $20 billion of Defence construction projects which are planned for the NT over the next 20 years and to maximise opportunities from other Defence investments.
The Northern Territory Government is establishing a team in Canberra - to be led by Air Vice Marshal Staib - to step-up its engagement with Defence and ensure the NT capitalises on current and future Defence opportunities.
