GoVERNMENTS are judged on
outcomes, the opposition is mea-
sured on new policy directions.
Chief Minister Giles launched a ‘Buy
Local Plan’ after three years of CLP
Government a week later betraying local
business handing a $40 million Gov-
ernment travel contract to an interstate
Resonating ‘do what I say, not do what
I do,’ Chief Minister Giles completely
breached CLP buy local campaign risk-
ing local Northern Territory travel firms
going out of business!
The Northern Territory economy cannot
afford the loss of a $40 million govern-
ment contract losing business, jobs and
people leaving the Territory.
Labor has analysed CLP policy and
the reality of their business transactions
formulating new policy focussed on a fair
go for local business.
Labor shares a commitment of 25%
local weighting awarding government
contracts however contrasts the CLP by
establishing an Independent Board as
auditing body with capacity to look at
all government work not just contracts
over $5 million.
Labor has committed to comprehensive
pre- tender communication with local
business noting small business as the
driver of Territory jobs and economic
growth needing assistance for govern-
Labor defined a long term infrastructure
commitment, a 10 year plan assisting and
supporting local business to joint venture
for larger opportunities in construction
and infrastructure projects.
Labor Leader Michael Gunner outlined
the development of a Small Business
Champions Unit advocating the role of
local business holding a Labor Govern-
ment to account.
Labor will restructure the Department
of Business creating the specialised unit
interacting with local business, regularly
reporting to Government on issues and
impact of government policy better in-
forming Cabinet decision making.
and supporting local business must be
complemented by ensuring government
construction and infrastructure work
filters through the local business sector.
Labor will ensure the infrastructure
spend by government includes strong
levels of minor new capital works
complemented by intensive repairs and
maintenance tendered in contract sizes
supporting small to medium businesses.
Labor offers consistency and integrity
in decision making, government struc-
tures and policy action consulting with
small business in contrast to CLP elite
business culture abrogating credibility.
Territorians expect and deserve a
government that listens where small to
medium Territory businesses are empow-
ered and supported in start-up, growth
and jobs growing the economy.
If elected Labor will host a Territory
Economic Summit guiding investment,
support Business Roundtables engaging
local business and establish ‘Team NT’
promoting the Northern Territory nation-
ally and internationally.
Labor’s commitment for growing jobs,
improving productivity, creating busi-
ness innovation and supporting local
business presents a clear alternative for
developing the NT economy.
