Labor-Green Recession Confirmed – Tas Economy Shrinks For Sixth Quarter In A Row

Today’s ABS figures are further confirmation that the Labor-Green minority experiment is killing our economy. ABS figures released today show that our economy has been continually shrinking since December 2010, according to Shadow Treasurer Peter Gutwein.
“In addition, these figures show that the value of exports is falling and the slump has now spread to the private sector, which has gone backwards as well for the past three quarters.”
“Rather than “turning the corner” as the Premier foolishly claimed earlier this week, it’s clear our economy has fallen off a cliff under the Labor-Green minority experiment.” Mr. Gutwein said.
“Tasmania desperately needs a majority Liberal Government to get back on track. We are only ones with a clear plan to grow the economy, create jobs and tackle the cost of living, and our Roadmap to Recovery and Growth is a blueprint for getting the State on its own two feet again.” Mr. Gutwein said.
