Population and Revitalisation
The Department of the Chief Minister and Cabinet is committed to a growing economy in places where Territorians want to live. Growing the Northern Territory’s population is critical to growing our economy.
A larger, more diverse population will mean better services, a stronger retail sector, more opportunity, more jobs, more significant private investment, and more revenue for the Territory.
The Department of the Chief Minister and Cabinet key areas of focus include:
The Northern Territory Government is working to bring new life and vibrancy to Darwin. To drive population growth, create more jobs and cement Darwin as a fantastic place to live, work and visit.
We are working with the Australian Government and the City of Darwin to transform our city into a world class tourism and cultural destination.
Alice Springs is the heart of Australia's Red Centre. Our goal, is to establish the region as Australia’s inland capital. The revitalisation of the Alice Springs CBD is one of the Northern Territory Government priorities to improve the liveability and attractiveness of Alice Springs for residents and visitors.
The Barkly Regional Deal is a joint partnership between the three levels of government to support the region’s economic and social development. Under the Local Decision Making plan the Northern Territory Government partners with Aboriginal communities to assist the transition of government services and programs to community control.
The Northern Territory Government established a co-investment fund to accelerate major and significant projects in the Territory.
The fund will support economic transformation projects and will help high growth potential Territory businesses to increase exports of goods and services both interstate and internationally.
