The East Arnhem Regional Economic Growth Committee (REGC) has been an integral part of the East Arnhem economic and business development landscape since Regional Economic Development Committees were initially established across the regions of the Northern Territory and most recently provided advice and support through the difficult COVID-19 years (under the banner of Regional Reconstruction Committees). The East Arnhem REGC has maintained a proactive, consistent and committed membership and provided strong advocacy for the region for many years.

The vision of the Arnhem Aboriginal Business Council (AABC) is to create a prosperous and thriving economic environment in Arnhem Land and the Groote Archipelago by bringing together Aboriginal businesses in the region to:

- Act as a collective voice when engaging with other entities e.g., local, Territory and Australian Governments and industry
- Operate socially responsible, sustainable businesses that build upon and improve the economy in our region whilst creating local Indigenous employment, training and skills opportunities.
