About the Webinar

The Northern Territory Government is continually strengthening the economic relationship with the United States: from the US Marine rotational force in Darwin, to the planned US-Darwin fibre link to the newly anticipated US Defence fuel storage facility, opportunities for businesses abound. At this Zoom roundtable, newly re-elected Chief Minister Michael Gunner will discuss his government's policy priorities, growth opportunities for business, and a framework for the economic road to recovery. 

To make the short time we have with the Chief Minister most efficient, please consider submitting a question in advance. This will allow the most time for the Chief Minister to address everyone’s interests. Submit questions here.

Speaker Biography 

The Hon Michael Gunner MP
Northern Territory Chief Minister
Treasurer; Minister for Major Projects and Territory Economic Reconstruction; Minister for Strategic Defence Relations

  

Michael Gunner is Chief Minister of the Northern Territory and Member for Fannie Bay in the NT Legislative Assembly.  

A fourth-generation Territorian, born in Alice Springs and raised in Tennant Creek, Michael became the first Territory-born Chief Minister after leading Labor to victory in August 2016. His government was re-elected in 2020.

Michael is focussed on creating jobs, investing in children, empowering the bush, ensuring local companies source work in major Defence projects, and positioning the Territory as a world leader in renewable solar energy.

Michael is working for permanent new jobs for Territorians by breaking boom-and-bust cycles and securing the Territory’s future as an energy superpower. Michael ordered the release of $400m in urgent stimulus and job-saving measures to get Territorians through the damaging coronavirus shutdown, and has brought together some of Australia’s best thinkers in the Territory Economic Reconstruction Commission to light the way forward.

He believes the coronavirus crisis has made an irrefutable case for home-grown food and energy security, and that the time is right for Darwin to transform into a major manufacturing precinct with value-added products from gas.

He is engaging major tech companies in a push for Darwin to become a key data storage hub for both this country and South-East Asia, at a time when some regional neighbours are struggling to supply power for their own data storage. Under his watch, the Terrabit Territory is bringing unprecedented internet speeds. He has positioned the Territory to connect with new global subsea fibre optic cables to support industry and Defence.

As Treasurer, Minister for Major Projects and Territory Economic Reconstruction, and Minister for Strategic Defence Relations, Michael will guide the Territory’s COVID recovery. 

Michael passionately advocates for recognition and reconciliation with Aboriginal Territorians through a Treaty, or treaties. Michael’s Local Decision-Making policy is charting a new way forward in Indigenous affairs by striking agreements with remote communities, who are taking control of their health, housing and education and local infrastructure.
