Showcase the Territorys Aboriginal cultures as central to our value proposition in market Roll-out a campaign to build international awareness of the Territory, including specifically promoting the value of Aboriginal cultures Deliver a program of inbound, outbound and virtual delegations to showcase the Territory in high priority markets. It is recognised that for the Territory to reach its full potential, we must do more to link Aboriginal Territorians with international markets and opportunities. To do this, we must leverage: the Northern Territory Governments Local Decision-Making Framework, encouraging communities to consider and lead internationally linked opportunities; the growing Territory Aboriginal business and entrepreneurial sector through facilitating connections with overseas markets and stakeholders; and Build cross-cultural business literacy with our partners Develop tailored engagement plans for high priority markets Launch a cross-cultural literacy program for business and industry to engage in high priority markets. The ability to demonstrate a deeper appreciation of the culture and business practices of a prospective partner (and market) will improve the depth of engagement and establish a mutual foundation of understanding and trust. Interwoven with the investment attraction plans, the engagement plans will help inform business and facilitators on appropriate channels, stakeholders, and approaches to market. collaboration with community organisations and institutions. Aboriginal Territorians are the heart of our community Traditional Owners across almost all the Territorys land mass and iconic natural environment, and the stewards and knowledgeholders for cultural experiences. As we engage internationally, we need to showcase Aboriginal cultures, strengthen opportunities for Aboriginal Territorians, to improve global understanding of the value of Aboriginal cultures and knowledge. As identified earlier in this strategy, Aboriginal cultures, and Aboriginal-led Territory business will be central to our international engagement plans and marketing campaigns.
