Economic summits consultation draft documents

The final Territory economic summits were held in Darwin and Alice Springs at the end of last month.

The economic summits process has been underway since October 2016, engaging with Territorians to co-design an economic development framework for the Territory.

More than 190 key organisations and over 1,200 people engaged in these consultations, which informed the development of the draft Economic Development Framework, draft Infrastructure Strategy and the draft 10 Year Infrastructure Plan.

The three consultation draft documents were discussed at the Alice Springs and Darwin economic summits, attended by over 400 people.

Feedback from these two sessions will be synthesised with feedback received via email, written submissions and other mechanisms.

The updated draft Economic Development Framework will then be provided to the External Reference Group and the Northern Territory Government. There will also be a process to gain endorsement from industry groups where the draft Economic Development Framework has assigned a lead role for industry.

The Northern Territory Government will then review and approve the final version of the Territory’s Economic Development Framework and it will be published in May 2017.
