Under the Hodgman Government, Tasmania has seen a dramatic turnaround in economic performance from just 5 years ago.

Today’s Australian Bureau of Statistics’ labour force data for July 2019 shows 13,000 jobs have been created since we came to office, Treasurer Peter Gutwein said.

In July, there were 200 jobs added to Tasmania’s economy, all of which are full time positions.

“These results follow data earlier this year showing, for the first time in almost 15 years, our economy is the strongest growing in the nation.” Treasurer Gutwein said.

It also follows Commsec’s recent analysis confirming Tasmania’s best economic performance in a decade, and this week’s NAB Business Survey results for July 2019, which showed we have the best business conditions in the nation, as well as the highest business confidence.

Such strong results do not happen by accident, they reflect the Hodgman Government’s long-term vision and Plan to grow the economy and create jobs.

“We know there is more to do, that’s why the 2019-20 State Budget delivers record investments in infrastructure, health and education to maintain this momentum, and invest for future growth.” Treasurer Gutwein said.
