Published on : Friday, November 21, 2014

Northern-Territory-GovernmentThe Giles Government demonstrated its commitment to the future of Nhulunbuy with the opening of the new East Arnhem Northern Australia Development Office.
“My Government is committed to building a new economic future for Nhulunbuy and this Northern Australia Development Office will work hand in hand with our new economic entity, ‘Developing East Arnhem’, to drive new industry in this region,” Chief Minister Adam Giles said.
“The East Arnhem region is a key prospect in our Northern Australia development agenda, with huge natural and cultural assets, as well as a strong service and infrastructure base.
“We want to see the region reach its full potential with a diversified economy incorporating everything from tourism to mining.
“This new, permanent office is located in the town centre, and provides a central coordination and meeting point for industry bodies, Traditional Owners, governments and the private sector to collaborate and work towards a prosperous future for all of East Arnhem’s communities.
“This initiative further demonstrates our commitment to sustaining the regional hub of Nhulunbuy.”
The new East Arnhem office will house officials from the Departments of the Chief Minister, Local Government and Regions, and Community Services and well as providing an initial base of operations for Developing East Arnhem, also launched today.
The Northern Australia Development Office in Darwin has been hugely successful in providing a new home for key peak industry bodies.
“This state of the art NADO facility has become a new one stop shop for potential investors to link up with crucial stakeholders in one location. I hope the Nhulunbuy Office will prove equally successful,” Mr Giles said.
“The Government is actively working to engage our regions in the Northern Australia Development agenda and will soon open another office in Alice Springs serving Central Australia.
“I encourage all Territorians to get behind this Northern Australia Development project which will secure our economic future and create jobs for our children.”
