About us

The Department of State Growth recognises and builds on synergies that exist across government and works collaboratively to create opportunities for all Tasmanians.

It is structured to bring together some of the state’s key economic drivers to ensure they are being utilised in a coordinated and focussed way to maximise growth outcomes.

The department pursues jobs and investment opportunities for Tasmania, with a focus on Tasmania’s competitive advantages and established industries.

It ensures Tasmania’s infrastructure and resources are managed sustainably and undertakes regulatory functions that provide a safe, efficient transport system.

It develops strategies for industry training and helps to maintain an efficient and effective regulatory structure for Tasmanian energy.

The department plays a key role in supporting the arts, events, hospitality, information technology and innovation.
