NT Government: Consultation opens on new NT Drone industry

06 Mar 2024 9:24 AM | Stephanie Berlin (Administrator)

Diversifying and growing the Territory’s economy is a key focus of the Territory Labor Government.

Another sector the Territory Government is targeting to get Territorians trained and working in is the drone industry.

The drone industry has experienced significant growth over recent years with the global market, representing the revenue from drone sales, components and related services, estimated to be worth US$30 billion in 2022.

A mature drone industry has the potential to increase productivity and economic participation across all sectors and presents significant opportunities in regional and remote areas of the Territory.

The draft Northern Territory Drone Industry Strategy is open for consultation, and sets out a framework to drive the development of drone technologies to enhance traditional industries, deliver economic benefits and transform service delivery, including:

  • Industry growth: work with industry to sustainably grow the NT drone industry.
  • Education, training and workforce development: work with research and educational organisations to develop a skilled workforce required for the NT drone industry.
  • Regulation and government settings: work with all levels of government to establish a regulatory environment that enables drone industry growth.
  • Community and recreation: work with the public to increase awareness of and recreational use of drones.

Quotes attributable to Chief Minister and Minister for Industry and Trade, Eva Lawler:

“The Territory Labor Government will always seek out opportunities to expand our economic market, which creates working and training opportunities for Territorians.

“The Territory is well positioned to become a leader in the drone industry with our vast open landscapes, proximity to growth markets and strong research capabilities.

“With demand for drones set to rapidly increase due to technology becoming more advanced, accessible and cost effective, increased uptake of drones will enhance productivity across many the Territory’s key sectors including mining, agriculture and tourism. I encourage all Territorians to have their say on the draft NT Drone Industry Strategy and help shape the future of this exciting industry in the Territory."
