Population growth a clear sign of confidence in Tasmania

Today’s population figures are a clear sign of confidence in the direction Tasmania is heading.

The Hodgman Government has worked hard to tackle the ‘brain-drain’ where our best and brightest move interstate, which was a hallmark of the Labor Government.

Today’s figures show that Tasmanians living interstate are now moving back to Tasmania because they see a bright future for the State and a bright future for themselves.

A growing population presents challenges, which is why we are implementing plans to tackle the housing shortage and investing significantly into the services and infrastructure that Tasmanians rely on.  A growing population also presents opportunities, through a growing economy, addressing skills shortages and helping to create even more jobs.

The Hodgman Government is determined to make Tasmania the best place in the country to live, work and raise a family.
