Strengthening ties with Indonesia
The Northern Territory Government is further strengthening ties with Indonesia, with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with West Nusa Tenggara Provincial Government.
This will increase economic cooperation and reaffirm the cultural and social relationship between the two jurisdictions.
The MoU supports the establishment of a sister province agreement between the Northern Territory Government and the West Nusa Tenggara Government.
Key activities in the plan of action include support around two-way trade missions, training and assessment scholarships, knowledge and skill sharing in the creative industries, tourism industry development and improving biosecurity capability.
Indonesia is one of six high priority markets in the Northern Territory’s International Engagement Strategy 2022-2026.
The MoU signing will enable the Northern Territory to diversify its trade with Indonesia, further grow Indonesia-Northern Territory partnerships and open trade links with Asia.
