NT should become the Switzerland of the Southern Hemisphere

2601 Kelvin McCann SM2601 Singapore SMThe Northern Territory is part of a country that does not assassinate its leaders, has a democratic system of electing leadership, and appears to other countries in the Asia Pacific region as a stable place. For Chinese, Japanese, Malaysian, Vietnamese, and Indonesians, amongst others, to safely bank private fortunes away from their own turbulent economies is just what they need, writes KELVIN McCANN (pictured). He deplores that the NT Government is turning a deaf ear to suggestions of capitalising on these opportunities. At right: Singapore is making it happen.

Trucking … you gotta love it!

Amidst the crusty truckies at the National Road Transport Hall of Fame reunion in Alice Springs last week was one quite unlike the rest: she is a petite blonde driving the rig of the year, a 50 tonne Drake low loader pulled by a 550 horsepower Western Star – total value more than half a million dollars.
Perhaps the only hint there may be a woman driver behind the wheel is the prime mover's colour: pink.
Julie Gavin transports earthmoving and mining equipment all around Australia.

Does she know what the future will hold for the industry she loves? "Good question. What's next week's lotto numbers, Erwin?" ERWIN CHLANDA reports.
