Northern Australia Annual Statement

“Northern Australia is already an economic powerhouse for Australia. Our government believes that the north’s proximity to world economic growth has created an unprecedented opportunity to invest in the north, and by doing so make returns for all Australians. That is why we have released the first ever White Paper to develop northern Australia”  Senator the Hon Matt Canavan, Minister for Resources and Northern Australia said recently.


“While I have the great honour of delivering this first update, I only have that honour thanks to the drive and determination of others. I especially want to credit Senator Ian Macdonald for his tireless and successful efforts to put northern development on the nation’s agenda.  Also to Warren Entsch and the members of his Parliamentary Committee whose report, Pivot North helped guide the policies in our White Paper” he said.
