OBJECTIVE — Provide
opportunities for key businesses established in the ACT to grow
The Canberra International Airport, Mount Stromlo
Observatory and the agricultural and forestry industries are all
recognised as assets for the ACT and surrounding NSW and elements
of the local economy that provide opportunities for further growth
of related businesses.
Mount Stromlo Observatory
The ACT Government has committed to assisting the
Australian National University (ANU) to re-establish the observatory
and its associated research and educational facilities, subsequent
to their destruction in the fires of January 2003. Special consideration
has been given to the impact of light pollution as a result of
urban development in the Molonglo Valley.
