Ramingining Industrial Hub
DEAL provided investment support to the Arnhem Land Progress Aboriginal Corporation’s (ALPA) development of their Industrial Hub Concept in Ramingining in 2018 through our Economic Development Fund. The investment saw development of Stage One of the Ramingining Industrial Hub, a ground-breaking new project that will develop infrastructure, capacity and capability in the Ramingining community, and give local business more opportunity to win and service government and other contracts that support local operations. Milestones of this project included extending the existing visitor accommodation from 3 rooms to 18 rooms and the development of a concrete batching plant including the purchase of an agitator truck. This project created eight new positions for local Yolŋu workers during the initial construction period, which ran from October 2018 to January 2019, and are ongoing.
