Matthew Groom, Minister for State Growth
With the State’s Budget back on track, our economy growing, tourism visitor numbers booming and strong investment opportunities, the Hodgman Liberal Government is continually looking at ways to Build Tasmania’s Future.
Tasmania has come a long way in recent years and there is an unprecedented level of interest in our State, both nationally and internationally. However, we realise there is still a long way to go.
Now is the time to capitalise on the growing strength of Tasmania’s brand through investment in the promotion of our unique advantages as a State.
The 2017-18 Budget provides:
Tasmania has a world-class education system with a number of attractive specialist education institutions that make an extremely compelling case for interstate and international students, and we will be investing:
This funding will help to increase Tasmania’s share of the education market and support numerous spill-over benefits into the local retail, transport, tourism and hospitality sectors.
Together these commitments reflect our strong and continued efforts to build Tasmania’s profile and ensure that all Tasmanians benefit from our growing economy and increased job and investment opportunities.
