4th Ministerial Forum on Northern Development
Ministers met this week in Katherine, NT to discuss ways to stimulate economic opportunities and create jobs in northern Australia.
This year they discussed the next phase of the northern agenda including ways to increase the economic engagement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Ministers confirmed their commitment to boosting the economic opportunities of Indigenous people by launching the Northern Australia Indigenous Development Accord. The Accord will drive a coordinated approach to economic activity, innovation and business opportunities in the north.
