What we do

Grow our sectors and maximise competitive advantages

Tasmania has competitive advantages in a number of key industry sectors.

Strategies have been developed for these trade and investment industries identifying growth potential, brand benefits or where the economy as a whole is most likely to benefit from focused government attention.

These sector strategies focus whole-of-government attention on making the most of opportunities and overcoming constraints to growth.

Different industry sectors will have different priority issues. For example, waste management is a priority for many industries including mining, mineral processing and red meat, while irrigation is a priority for vegetables, dairy and wine. Agricultural sectors are concerned about the cost and availability of labour, while manufacturing, science and research and tourism sectors are concerned with skill shortages.
