NT seeks community consultation on Territory 2030

By Staff Writer

The Northern Territory Government is calling for feedback on its draft Territory 2030 strategy.

Released by the Territory 2030 Steering Committee, the strategy sets targets on a number of key policy areas.

NT Chief Minister Paul Henderson said Territory 2030 was an “unprecedented long-term strategic plan” which would continue “strong economic management” to withstand the impacts of the global financial crisis.

The Steering Committee has placed education at the centre of 20-year strategy.

“The draft recognises that education is key to making the Territory smart, skilled and prosperous,” Henderson said.

“I agree that striving for quality education and better outcomes is a critical part of the direction the community and the Government should take.”

Round one of consultations resulted in 77 submissions and face-to-face meetings with more than 300 people. Henderson called for further feedback in the second round of consultations.

“I urge all Territorians to have their say to help shape the direction the Territory takes over the next couple of decades,” he said.

The Government will conduct a series of public forums and industry workshops across the Territory, including Indigenous communties.

Comments can also be made online via the 2030 website or by written submissions to the Steering Committee.
