Tasmanian economy growing under majority Hodgman Liberal Government
 

ABS data released today shows that the economy is growing under the Hodgman Government.

State Final Demand is a key economic indicator, and under the Hodgman Government’s long-term Plan, State Final Demand has grown 6.3 per cent.

Between September 2016 and September 2017, State Final Demand increased by 2.2 per cent, just short of the national average of 2.4 per cent.

While this is encouraging, there is still more to do.  That’s why we are supporting businesses to employ more young Tasmanians with our $25 million jobs package, investing in infrastructure, and supporting key industries like tourism, hospitality and agriculture.

We’ve reformed the planning and building systems and we’ve worked hard to keep the cost of living and the cost of doing business in Tasmania as low as possible.

We are also investing heavily in our education system to improve education outcomes, which will help our economy continue to grow and more Tasmanians to get a job.
