Manufacturing The T errito ry m an u fac tu rin g sec to r has developed largely in response to the needs o f the construction industry and the opportunity to process Territory minerals. Reflecting this limited diversity, manufacturing accounted for a significantly smaller proportion o f Territory GSP than its contribution to the national economy (see Table 12.1). Industry activity is dominated by the basic and fabricated metals sector which includes the se co n d a ry p ro c e s s in g o f m in e ra ls (fo r example, bauxite to alumina at Gove), gold processing and tertiary fabrication o f metals products used in construction.
