The 2020-21 Tasmanian Budget is about Jobs, Confidence and Community.

To get Tasmania back in business and keep Tasmania on top, we are unleashing a landmark

$5 billion infrastructure program to underpin 25,000 jobs, grow our economy, boost confidence and strengthen our communities in every region.

For Clark this means we will build the intergenerational infrastructure our State needs to thrive, including more homes, better schools, roads, bridges, irrigation systems, as well as renewable energy assets, health, housing and justice facilities.

We’re backing Tasmanian businesses, supporting their recovery and growth, making it easier for them to employ and investing even more into education and skills, to ensure more Tasmanians have the ability to grasp the opportunities ahead. Together, we will rebuild a stronger Tasmania.
