 In the last few years Aboriginal organisations have become significant  contributors to the  Northern Territory economy and now both the Federal and Territory  Governments  are keen to see more involved in growing  the local economy.

Wes Miller, Manager of the  Aboriginal Governance  and Management Program   says  that in an environment where funds are harder  and harder to get...culture has a very important role to play in good governance.
