Indigenous Economic Development Strategy
27 May 2010 at 12:53 pm
The Federal Government has released its draft Indigenous Economic Development Strategy for community consultation.
The draft strategy outlines a framework for Indigenous economic development focusing on five key areas for improving the prosperity of Indigenous Australians: education and building individual capacity; creating sustainable job opportunities; supporting business and enterprise development; financial security and independence; and strengthening the foundations to provide an environment that supports Indigenous economic development.
Interested individuals and organisations are invited to review the strategy and provide feedback on issues raised or any new issues. During the consultation period, the Government says it will continue to move forward on key initiatives that support Indigenous economic development.
Interested parties are invited to comment on the draft strategy by providing a written submission. The closing date for submissions: Monday 1 November 2010.
Submissions may be lodged electronically or by post (electronic lodgement is preferred.)
