Response to Premier’s Economic and Social Recovery Advisory Council recommendations

Release Date: 20/07/2020
The Tasmanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry has welcomed the release of interim advice to the Government from the Premier’s Economic and Social Recovery Advisory Council.
CEO Michael Bailey said the interim recommendations set up a strong framework for recovery.
“Today’s interim report sets the scene for the upcoming budget, which will be the most important in the State’s history,” Mr Bailey said.
“With this as a basis, the Government needs to clearly identify policies and projects that will help kickstart our economy.  That should include measures such as payroll and other business taxes, as well as input costs like energy costs.
“The TCCI also welcomes the recommendation that Government avoids drowning businesses in compliance red tape regarding COVIDSafe plans and workplace health and safety obligations.  Recommendation 30 that “penalties [be] limited to genuinely recalcitrant non-compliers” is particularly welcomed and supported by the TCCI.”
