What we do

Grow regional economic prosperity

Of key importance to state growth is the development of Tasmania’s regions and increasing local prosperity.

Tasmania has one of the most decentralised populations of any state or territory in Australia and these smaller, more connected communities contribute much to the Tasmanian way of life.

Sustainable regional economic growth is an essential element of growing regional communities and a combination of a region’s prosperity and lifestyle make it a place that attracts and retains people to live and work.

Economic opportunities create the basis for population growth, which itself is an economic stimulus to industry sectors such as retail and construction, and assists in defraying the costs of infrastructure development.

The combination of a region’s economic opportunities and liveability advantages make it a place that attracts and retains people to live and work.

As well as establishing the office of the Coordinator-General in Launceston, the Department of State Growth has three regional offices whose staff are in day to day contact with local businesses providing advice and support.
