Economic Development

 

The National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA) was established on 1 July 2019. Prior to this the functions of the Agency were delivered by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C). We are currently working through this transition and some content is yet to be transferred between websites. For the latest news from NIAA visit niaa.gov.au.

 

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should have the same opportunities for economic participation as other Australians. Economic Development policies and programs are about creating the right enabling environment. We are supporting Indigenous people to make the most out of their land assets and cultural knowledge. In remote areas, we are increasing business and employment opportunities, and making goods and services more easily available. The Government’s purchasing power helps Indigenous businesses, and assists entrepreneurs who want to establish or grow a small business.
