Sir – The Territory Government will establish a new Central Australia Development Office in Alice Springs as part of its campaign to bring investment to the North.
Regional development is a priority for my Government and our new Central Australian Development Office will ensure Alice Springs is actively involved in our Northern Australia Development agenda.
The Alice Springs facility will house senior officers of the Northern Territory Government, provide office accommodation for visiting industry associations and provide a hub for investors interested in Central Australia and the rest of the Territory.
It’s a model that’s been hugely successful in our Darwin Northern Australia Development Office and I’m pleased to be extending it to Alice Springs.
By developing the north we can realise our full economic potential and open up vast areas of the Territory to new business opportunities and create jobs for our children.
The new Office is exactly the kind of inclusive and strategic regional initiative the 250 delegates at the SEGRA Conference have been talking about.
This conference is a great opportunity for all sectors of the Australian community to explore issues affecting regional, rural and remote Australia and an opportunity to discuss the best ways of securing Australia’s future prosperity.
The Northern Territory Government committed $10,000 from the Regional Economic Development Fund to support the hosting of the conference in Alice Springs.
Adam Giles
Chief Minister
