Deloitte confirms Tasmania’s strong economy

Tasmania continues to be a better place to live than ever before, and today’s Deloitte Access Economics Business Outlook confirms that Tasmania’s economy has continued to perform strongly, supported by good population growth, household consumption, and public and private investment.

Under the Hodgman Liberal Government’s long-term plan for Tasmania, our state has come a long way after a disastrous period of Labor-Green minority government, which slammed Tasmania into recession.

This latest report confirms that the state’s economic growth is expected to remain solid.

The report stated that this is “the best that the State’s economy has managed since before the global financial crisis”. It goes on to say that business conditions remain strong for the state, and forecasts strong employment growth over the next four years with reductions in unemployment.

Tasmania has come a long way since we came to office in 2014, but we know there is more work to be done.

The Hodgman Liberal Government is committed to delivering on our plan for a strong economic, which allows for even more investment into the infrastructure and services our growing state needs.
