This week’s jobs summit is an admission of failure from Labor and the Greens. Tasmanians know that the only way to get the economy growing and to create jobs is to get rid of the disastrous Labor-Green experiment.

While Labor continues to offer excuses, the Liberals have developed a Jobs Plan. Our plan focuses on economic growth, more investment, more jobs and less red and Green tape.
