Tasmania’s economy amongst strongest in Nation

Peter Gutwein, Treasurer

Statistics released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics today confirm that Tasmania’s economy is one of the best performing in Australia.

State Final Demand figures for the December 2017 quarter were up 0.5 per cent for the quarter, and up 3.6 per cent for the year.

This means our economy was the third strongest when compared to other Australian states, only behind Victoria (4.4 per cent) and South Australia (3.9 per cent).

The re-elected Hodgman Liberal Government will continue to build on our work of the past few years to further strengthen our economy, as we continue to take Tasmania to the next level.
