Indigenous groups have welcomed the federal government's promise to overhaul its approach on targets to reduce Indigenous disadvantage.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison says after 12 years, the Close the Gap targets will be changed to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

Scott Morrison says the results of the latest Close the Gap report are "stark and sobering", with only two of the seven targets on track to be met.
