DKA CEO Lauren Ganley travelled to China last week to showcase the Northern Territory to business and industry representatives.

Ms Gan­ley spent time in Shen­zhen, Chi­na with a group of more than eighty North­ern Ter­ri­to­ry del­e­gates led by Chief Min­is­ter Michael Gun­ner. With col­lab­o­ra­tion between the NT and Chi­na grow­ing more each year, this was an excit­ing chance for del­e­gates to explore oppor­tu­ni­ties in inter­na­tion­al edu­ca­tion and train­ing, ener­gy, tourism, and agriculture.

Mr. Gun­ner said, 

Pri­vate sec­tor invest­ment and Gov­ern­ment facil­i­tat­ed projects con­tribute sig­nif­i­cant­ly to the Ter­ri­to­ry econ­o­my through the cre­ation of jobs and busi­ness oppor­tu­ni­ties. This is why del­e­ga­tions like this are so important.
Busi­ness­es will ben­e­fit from face-to-face con­tact with local busi­ness­es from Shen­zhen, which is a mar­ket of around 20 mil­lion people.”

As the only del­e­gate from Alice Springs, Ms Gan­ley was proud to share the bound­less poten­tial of Cen­tral Aus­tralia. In an inter­view with Chi­nese inter­na­tion­al Eng­lish-lan­guage news chan­nel CGTN news, Ms Gan­ley said that the Desert Knowl­edge Precinct in sun­ny Alice Springs pro­vides the ide­al space to test dig­i­tal and solar ener­gy tech­nolo­gies before mar­ket­ing prod­ucts to a glob­al audi­ence. Ms Gan­ley was also excit­ed to show­case DKA’s flag­ship project Intyal­heme, as well as oth­er pro­grams like edu­tourism, knowl­edge expe­ri­ences for cor­po­rate groups and Codes 4 Life
