The federal government’s blueprint for developing northern Australia will be released by mid-year.
Prime Minister Tony Abbott told parliament Trade Minister Andrew Robb was finalising the white paper on northern Australia.
“The focus is on building priority roads, developing water resources, attracting more investment and reducing red tape,” Mr Abbott said of the document.
Northern Australia was seen as the “last frontier”, but was in fact the “next frontier” for economic development.
