Tasmanian exports continue to boom


Preliminary ABS exports data released today shows Tasmania’s goods exports hit $3.7 billion in the 12-months to March 2021, 3.2 per cent higher than the previous year.

This is the third highest annual growth rate in the country, despite the disruption of COVID and demonstrates Tasmania has what the world wants.

We have a clear plan to diversify and expand our export markets, and only a re-elected majority Gutwein Liberal Government will invest a further $6 million to ensure that we not only maintain our momentum but continue to build our global trade.

Labor have no policy to support our exporters, while our Tasmanian Trade Strategy and our Annual Action Plans give business and industry the direction and confidence to grow exports, driving economies across regional Tasmania and creating jobs.
