Article – New development hub for Central Australia

4 February 2015
The Giles Government is driving development in the Territory’s regions with the opening of the new Central Australia Development Office (CADO) in Alice Springs.
“A key part of unlocking the potential of Northern Australia lies in Central Australia and this new office will be a hub for the Government’s campaign to bring more investment to the Red Centre,” Chief Minister Adam Giles said.
“Regional development is a priority for the NT Government and CADO will ensure Alice Springs is actively involved in the Northern Australia Development agenda.”
CADO will be a new home for government, industry and the private sector to shape the future of Central Australia.
“By bringing together key stakeholders, the Northern Territory Government has created a one stop shop for business and industry to progress development across the Centre,” Mr Giles said.
Strategically located in the Todd Mall, CADO is a professional office facility and meeting space designed to support industry, investors and the private sector interested in doing high level business in the Territory.
“We are thrilled to have locked-in Regional Development Australia as a permanent stakeholder that will set up in the office,” Mr Giles said.
Regional Development Australia is a partnership between the Australian, state, territory and local governments to develop and strengthen the regional communities of Australia.
The Department of Business is also co-locating development officers at CADO and peak bodies in a range of sectors will use the office space for meetings.
The Central Australia Development Office builds on the fantastic results from the Northern Australia Development Office in Darwin which has proven a hit with the peak bodies and associations that are permanently based there. Almost 5000 guests have used its facilities since April last year.
