Today’s Australian Bureau of Statistics retail trade data for July 2019 is great news for Tasmanian retailers who recorded the fastest growth in monthly trade in the nation.

“Retail trade in July 2019 grew 0.3 % in trend terms, with retail trade growing to a record $551.6 Million in turnover for the month.” Treasurer Peter Gutwein said.

Growth in our retailers demonstrates once again that not only are our businesses the most confident, but our consumers are too, supporting our businesses who employ 46,500 Tasmanians in every corner of the state.

“We have come a long way in the past five and a half years and the Hodgman Government is committed to delivering on our Plan, which is growing our economy and opportunities for all Tasmanians.” Treasurer Peter Gutwein said.
