Chief Minister Michael Gunner will meet for the first time with the new Trade Minister, Simon Birmingham and with the new South Australia Premier Steven Marshall.
On the agenda at the Trade Ministerial Council with Minister Birmingham will be international education, recently signed trade agreements and the lithium and rare earths trade, issues that have a direct impact on Territory jobs.
Discussions with Mr Marshall will include the ongoing strategic partnership between the Northern Territory and South Australia.
Mr Gunner will also meet with the SA Opposition Leader Peter Malinauskas.
While in Melbourne, the Chief Minister and AFLNT CEO Stuart Totham will meet with AFL CEO Gil McLachlan, to discuss the AFLs continued presence in the Territory and to further progress a Northern Territory based team in the AFL.
The Chief Minister will also join other State and Territory leaders in Melbourne to meet with the AFL Commission ahead of the AFL Grand Final.
The telecast of the Grand Final will feature a 60 second Boundless Possible television ad, showcasing the modern Territory story across Australia and the world.
As noted by Chief Minister Michael Gunner
My number one priority is to create jobs for Territorians, and telling our Boundless Possible story is a fantastic way to do this.
We want everyone to know that the Territory is open for business, and that its a great place to live, study, work, invest and raise a family.
We need to bust those myths about the Territory, and Im thrilled the Territory will be centre stage at one of the biggest sporting events in Australia the AFL Grand Final, where so many Territory sporting legends have left their mark.
Telling the modern Territory story is also about sharing the story of our incredible success stories in trade and innovation, and letting the world know that we are a great place to invest.
