Investment Opportunities

Attracting international investment into the Northern Territory’s resources sector.

Investment Attraction Program

The Northern Territory Government’s International Minerals and Energy Investment Attraction Program is one component of the Resourcing the Territory precompetitive geoscience initiative, designed to stimulate new minerals and energy exploration and project development across the Northern Territory (NT).

The investment attraction program particularly focuses on raising the Territory’s profile and promoting investment opportunities in the key markets of South Korea, Japan and China, with activities also focused in other important global markets such as North America and India.

The program is working with companies to promote specific investment opportunities to international investors.
