Statistics released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics today confirm that Tasmania’s economy is one of the best performing in Australia, Treasurer Peter Gutwein said.

State Final Demand figures for the December 2017 quarter were up 0.5 % for the quarter, and up 3.6 % for the year.

This means our economy was the third strongest when compared to other Australian states, only behind Victoria (4.4 %) and South Australia (3.9 %).

“Re-elected Hodgman Government will continue to build on our work of the past few years to further strengthen our economy, as we continue to take Tasmania to the next level.” Treasurer Peter Gutwein said.
