Strategic Issues for 2012-13 Economic Sustainability Issues that will influence the Territorys economic and fiscal circumstances include: the outcome of the review into the distribution of Goods and Services Tax (GST) revenue; the increased complexity of Commonwealth/state intergovernmental financial arrangements, particularly the requirements of national partnership agreements and associated performance targets and achievements in a range of areas including health reform and Stronger Futures; the continued constraints on commercial finance following the impacts of the European debt crises on investment markets; the final investment decision by INPEX for the Ichthys project will have a significant impact on the Territory economy during construction and over the 40-year life of the project; national economic conditions leading to lower Territory revenues and a more constrained fiscal outlook; the continued development of frameworks for reliable, secure and cost-effective provision of electricity, water and sewerage; and continued collaborative arrangements with the Australian Bureau of Statistics and Territory agencies.
