THE LEVEL OF PARTICIPATION BY HIGH PROFILE NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL GOVERNMENT AND PRIVATE SECTOR AGENCIES CONTINUES TO BE A FEATURE OF NT EXPO. I BELIEVE IT IS ALSO A POSITIVE REFLECTION OF THE IMMENSE AMOUNT OF MARKETING EFFORT PUT IN OVER A SUSTAINED PERIOD OF TIME BY THIS GOVERNMENT AND MEMBERS OF THE INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS COUNCIL. DEVELOPING RELATIONSHIPS AND FORMING PARTNERSHIPS IS THE KEY TO THE SUCCESS WE ARE STARTING TO ENJOY. MADAM SPEAKER, OVER THE PAST FIVE YEARS, NT EXPO HAS DEVELOPED A REPUTATION AS AN IDEAL TIME FOR PEOPLE FROM ASIA TO MEET AND NETWORK WITH TERRITORY AND OTHER AUSTRALIAN BUSINESS PEOPLE. THE OCCASION OF EXPO ALSO LEADS TO BUSINESS ARRANGEMENTS BETWEEN VISITING OVERSEAS DELEGATES. THESE ARRANGEMENTS DO NOT ALWAYS INCLUDE A TERRITORY PARTICIPANT. WE HAVE ALWAYS HAD THE VISION THAT OUR EXPO HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME THE FOCAL POINT FOR INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS LIAISON AND THAT OBJECTIVE IS BEING REALISED EACH YEAR. THAT OUR CITY OFFERS A SECURE AND CONGENIAL ENVIRONMENT FOR SUCH INTERNATIONAL NEGOTIATIONS AND DISCUSSIONS IS A FACT OF WHICH ALL TERRITORIANS SHOULD BE PROUD.
