Exciting times ahead

It was pleasing to hear that the recent Centre for Independent Studies report shows that under the Hodgman Liberal Government, Tasmania’s finances are strong and ranked as the second best in the country.

This is a far cry from 2014 when we came to Government and began the long process of repairing the budget, economy and creating employment.

Under our long-term Plan, Tasmania is now heading in the right direction.

Jobs remain our number one priority, which is why we are committed to rebuilding Tasmania's forest industry - to sustain and to create new jobs.

Next session in Parliament, as the Minister responsible for Forestry, I will be tabling the Forestry (Unlocking Production Forests) Bill, which is aimed at ensuring the supply of high quality sawlogs to Tasmanian mills.

Tasmania has and continues to make strong contributions to the country and I am excited to continue advancing Tasmania's interests into the future.

As always I welcome your feedback and look forward to working with you, and for you, into what is a very bright future for our wonderful State of Tasmania.





Change for a brighter future.
