Government committed to Forestry Tasmania reform Mon 22 October 2012 Bryan Green Deputy Premier The Deputy Premier Bryan Green said today the Government was focussed on ensuring Forestry Tasmania is on a viable financial footing as the industry confronts unprecedented challenges. "The Government's decision to change the operating structure of Forestry Tasmania was based on independent advice and we are committed to implementing the reforms," Mr Green said. "We are working with the Forestry Tasmania board and management to move the business forward. "There will always be a level of resistance to change but that will not divert the Government's attention from implementing such important policy reform. "Ultimately changes to the management structure of Forestry Tasmania are a matter for the board and the managing director. "From the Government's perspective it is not about individuals and these decisions are made without influence from the Minister. "We will continue to do what is necessary to make sure Forestry Tasmania remains a viable corporate entity and in that respect it is no different to any other Government-owned business," Mr Green said.
