HOW DBIRD OPERATES The Department of Business, Industry and Resource Development (DBIRD) plays a key role in developing the Northern Territory (NT). The programs and activities of the department provide support to business and industry at all levels and all locations across the NT. The department delivers programs and services that range from boosting skills and promoting growth in small to medium enterprises, to supporting development of major projects and regulating key industries such as pastoralism, mining and oil and gas. DBIRD is strongly focussed on supporting key objectives of the NT Government, including: Jobs for all Territorians Population Growth Education Healthier Communities Safer Communities Quality of Life These align with DBIRDs contributions to delivering other major NT Government programs, including the Economic Development Strategy, Indigenous Economic Development, Regional Development and Major Development Projects.
