Building Your Future

After three and a half years of majority Liberal Government Tasmania is heading in the right direction. More Tasmanians than ever are in work with over 10,000 new jobs created since the last state election.

Our hospital elective surgery waiting lists are at record lows and we’ve employed more than 250 new nurses and are opening over 120 additional hospital beds.

Our agriculture, aquaculture and tourism sectors are booming, creating vital jobs in regional Tasmania. More young Tasmanians are completing year 12, giving them the best shot in life and our budget is back in balance, meaning we can afford to invest more into essential services such as health.

But we know this isn’t as good as it gets.

We know not everyone is feeling the benefits of the stronger economy, or shorter hospital waiting lists, and we know that rising costs of living are a real issue. So now we’re focused on Building Your Future.

Over the coming week we will be releasing details about the positive new Plan which we will take to the next election. This will be our plan for a re-elected majority Liberal Government.

The Plan focuses on six priority areas we know are important to you –

  • To deliver a stronger economy and more jobs
  • Act on the cost of living
  • Invest more into health, education and Tasmanians in need
  • Keep Tasmanians safe
  • Protect the Tasmanian way of life, and
  • Build Tasmania’s infrastructure for the 21st century.

In fact our new Plan contains 43 specific ways we’ll improve the lives of you and your family.

Under our Plan to Build Your Future we’ll make our State an even better place to live, and take Tasmania to the next level.
