The Department of State Growth was established on 1 July 2014.
When creating the department the government bought together four interrelated divisions developing a strategic approach that drives economic growth, and supports the community, industry and business in the creation of jobs and opportunities for Tasmanians.
The department has eight ministers spanning 12 portfolios. We work across industry and services that include investment attraction, transport, infrastructure, cultural industry and tourism supply development, skills, training and workforce growth, international relations and trade, science and technology, resources, energy and emissions reductions, and region and sector development.
As part of work undertaken by the department we support:
- Boards and Committees
- Corporate Plan
- Organisational structure
- Our Ministers
- Planning Reform Taskforce
- Policies governing the Department
- Public Interest Disclosure Procedures
- Right to Information
- Statutory Authorities
- Tasmanian Development Board
- Tasmanian Technopark
- Tendering and contracts
- White Ribbon Workplace
