Abstract

[Extract] The renewed focus on the economic potential of Northern Australia recognises its unique proximity to Asia and the Indo Pacific region and its strategic position within the fastest growing global zone: The Tropics. Northern Australia is recognised as vital to Australia's future economic development over the next 30 years of the Asia-Pacific century. With sustained policy and political commitment, Northern Australia has the capacity to be an international leader in providing health professional education, tropical health research and development, and innovative health service models that will enable the development of a knowledge-based economic platform for the region.
