A new Northern Australia Strategic Partnership comprising the Prime Minister and the Premiers of Queensland and Western Australia and the Chief Minister of the Northern Territory will be established. The Partnership will provide national leadership on the development of northern Australia and inform the development and implementation of the White Paper, recognising the need for a focused effort from all governments. The Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development will support the Prime Minister on the Strategic Partnership, along with relevant State and Territory Ministers from Northern Australia to ensure close engagement with jurisdictions. The Partnership will also be informed by a business, community and Indigenous Advisory Group drawn from northern Australia.
