Business confidence in Tasmania still the strongest in Australia

Peter Gutwein, Treasurer

For the third month in a row, the May NAB Monthly Business Survey released today confirms Tasmanian business confidence is the highest in Australia, well above the national average.

Business confidence is key to supporting investment and employment. Today’s May NAB Monthly Business Survey results are a continued sign of the underlying strength in Tasmania’s economic resurgence in the week we deliver our first Budget following our re-election.

Tasmania has come a long way over the past four years with more than 11,000 new jobs created, but we know there is more work to be done.

Today’s figures are just the latest in a series of positive reports by MyState, Sensis, Deloitte Access Economics and CommSec that confirm the Government is delivering for Tasmanians.
