Can't Be Stopped: Tasmania's Economic Growth

Tasmanian Treasurer The Hon Peter Gutwein noted in a recent media release that State Final Demand confirms Tasmania’s recent economic growth is well ahead of the national average. Stories from Hospo State in earlier weeks have covered a range of reports from a multitude of sources that have all noted Tasmania as a region of undeniably strong economic growth in the past year.

These figures are the latest in a long list of economic performance reports and independent commentary that is confirming the strength of the Tasmanian economy.
