26 July 1993
Delegates were invited to the ceremonial opening of the Sabah Parliament and were later photographed with the Speaker and Presiding Officers in the Parliament Precinct. NT Trade Delegations led by Shane Stone were highly disciplined and focused activities. Participation was by way of invitation and expression of interest. Pre departure briefings were mandatory. Delegation members agreed a code of behaviour and to wear identifying NT ties, scarves and NT flag lapel pins when requested. Joint flags (NT and visited country flag) were also made available. An accompanying protocol officer oversaw social engagements and department officers arranged meetings and site visits. Debriefings on arrival back in the NT were optional.
