16 February 1999
Correspondence from Mr Peter Carew, President of the Northern Territory Chamber of Commerce and Industry, following the retirement of Shane Stone as Chief Minister of Australia's Northern Territory. Extensive mail, fax and telephone messages were received from throughout the Territory and from Australia wide, hence, a small selection of the correspondence has been included in the archives. Extract: ''The NT Chamber of Commerce and Industry would like to recognise your dedication and hard work in your term as Chief Minister ...It was a very positive leadership as you worked to fulfil the needs of Territorians. Your overseas work has benefited business greatly in the Territory and I hope this continues under the new leadership. The business community has benefited from the economic growth in the Territory over many years and your contribution is recognised''. Shane Stone responded May 6 including support for Denis Burke.
