Economic Development

Economic Development picture

The State Labor Government is working to build a strong and diverse economy for the benefit of all Tasmanians. Economic Development is central to implementing that vision.

The Tasmanian Government works to build linkages and partnerships between government, industry and the community.

Tasmanians have a strong record of innovation, of fresh ideas, and Economic Development helps our entrepreneurs to develop and commercialise their ideas.

This extends to developing trade and export opportunities by identifying national and international markets for individual businesses to target.

The Government is also actively attracting new investment and projects to the State through marketing Tasmania’s positive business environment interstate and overseas. Our unique natural environment, accessible services and high quality of life are an integral part of that attraction.

It is vital for Tasmania’s future that our economy keeps growing and that business investment stays strong. A vibrant and dynamic economy underpins a progressive and forward-looking society. The active focus of Economic Development is helping to build Tasmania’s future.
