Hi. Im Adam Giles, Chief Minister of the Northern Territory.

Thanks for taking the time to find out about Budget 2015.

Treasurer Dave Tollners budget delivers an array of improved education, health, sporting and cultural facilities right across the Territorys landscape. 

Our last two Budgets were about getting us into a sound financial position to the point where we can now invest in resources and infrastructure to help improve Territorians lives.

Were spending more than $1.4 billion on health improvements including to Alice Springs and Darwin hospitals and late this year well be starting work on the new Palmerston Regional Hospital.

Education will see more than a billion dollars going towards it including $150 million for school upgrades to ensure that our teachers, our parents but particularly our kids have the best world class educational facilities.

Every major arterial route in the Northern Territory will have significant investments into it to help connect Territorians, to help connect business but also to help create jobs in the Territory Well be spending nearly $40 million on cultural facilities, including $18 million to upgrade the Chan Building to ensure that we have a new arts space in Darwin and setting aside $20 million to support the development of a new Indigenous cultural centre here in the Northern Territory.

And were spending nearly $60 million on upgrading sporting facilities here across the Territory to ensure that not only that we get top class sporting events here but our kids and our other sporting participants have access to the best sporting infrastructure.

Budget 2015 is about good financial management and investing in infrastructure to support Territorians going ahead.

Have a lovely day.
