Delivering Our Long Term Plan

Gutwein Government remains focused on delivering our Plan to boost the economy, create more jobs and provide more opportunities for all Tasmanians.

With Tasmanian businesses the most confident in the country, and the fastest growing economy in the nation, local companies are investing in their future now, more than ever before. Over 18,000 jobs have been created since we first came to Government, Premier Peter Gutwein said.

Tasmania continues to perform better than the Australian average across most key indicators with over 5,000 more apprenticeship and traineeship commencements in 2018-19 and the highest completion rates in the county.

With our apprenticeship numbers continuing to rise, our Building and Construction sector plays a vital role in shaping our future for even more opportunities for younger Tasmanians.

“Importantly, Tasmania was the only jurisdiction to see growth in building work done over the year to September 2019 quarter, while all other jurisdictions saw building activity decline.”

“These results do not happen by accident, and we know there’s more to do, which is why my Government will continue deliver on our long term Plan to grow the economy and create jobs.” Premier Gutwein said.
