TCCI launches its plan to support business and create jobs

Release Date: 7/04/2021
The Tasmanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry has today released its priorities for the 1 May election.
TCCI CEO, Michael Bailey, said business was driving force behind the post-COVID economic recovery and the TCCI’s plan outlined how the next government can create more jobs, grow the economy and support business. 
“Tasmanian businesses are driving our economic recovery and we want the next government to support that,” Mr Bailey said.
“Exclusive polling conducted for the TCCI shows that over 40 per cent of the community think that in 12 months’ time our economy will be stronger than it is now.  That’s great for business confidence, but we need the next government to have a plan to back it in. 
“That’s why as part of our plan we want the next government to support business by looking at the tax system, education and skills, workforce development and boosting the economy.  The community and the next government can’t become complacent and expect business to do all of the heavy lifting.  We need a government that is prepared to roll up its sleeves and stand side-by-side with business.
“The TCCI has spent time consulting with business to develop a charter that sets out clear principles we expect the next government to adhere to.  We have sent that charter to both Mr Gutwein and Ms White and we encourage them to sign it on behalf of their respective parties and to ensure the next government of Tasmania embraces that charter.  It is vital that whoever forms government after the 1 May election is backing business 100 per cent, because it’s our business community that has helped Tasmania recover so quickly from COVID and it is our business community that will help take our economy to the next level.”
