The Territory will achieve this by: Deepening mutually beneficial and enduring international partnerships Building cross-cultural business literacy with our partners Showcasing the Territorys Aboriginal cultures as central to our value proposition in market. How we will know we have succeeded: Increased awareness of the value of Aboriginal cultures in international markets Increased prominence and recognition of the Territory in priority markets. The Territory benefits from a strong presence of community groups led by people with origins, connections, and influence in diaspora networks across countries including European Union, Indonesia, India, China, Japan, Nepal, Timor-Leste, Thailand and more. Around 30 per cent of Territorians identify as Aboriginal Australians, and they are the heart of our community. Collaboration between the Northern Territory Government and Territory Aboriginal Traditional Owners, organisations and businesses are vital for increasing understanding of the Territorys Aboriginal cultures on the world stage. The Northern Territory population is diverse 30% Aboriginal Territorians 20% of Territorians were born overseas Source: ABC Census 2016.
