International trade and investment focus during Arafura Games


A targeted program of events will showcase the Territory’s unique international trade and investment opportunities to key audiences and will run in parallel with the Arafura Games.

The Business Engagement Program will run alongside the Games from Monday 29 April to Saturday 4 May 2019.

It will encourage international and national investment in the Territory by developing and strengthening trade and investment relationships with our neighbours across the Asia Pacific region.

Highlights include:

  • a new history of trade exhibition will illustrate the diverse and fascinating history of trade between the Top End of Australia and the Asia-Pacific region
  • business hubs located at Marrara and the Darwin Convention Centre in close proximity to Arafura Games sporting events
