This policy updates the previous Economic Development Policy (2014-2018). It outlines how the NSWALC will pursue economic development, wealth creation and wellbeing for Aboriginal people in NSW over the next five years to 2024.
Economic development has been a thread throughout the history of the Aboriginal Land Rights Act 7983. Restoring economic independence and prosperity is essential to our survival as a distinct, self determining people. Economic independence is also necessary to unlock the full potential of Aboriginal Land Rights and ensure the effective management of land that has been returned to us.
