TCCI welcomes Government’s infrastructure agenda

Release Date: 15/05/2020
Today’s budget update confirms the scale of the impact of the coronavirus on our economy and the State Government’s finances.
TCCI CEO, Michael Bailey, said it was going to be a long-haul to get our economy back on track.
“There is a long road back to recovery, and we need to support Tasmanian businesses to build that road,” Mr Bailey said.
“Let’s be clear: Tasmania’s business sector is the engine room of our economy and it will be Tasmanian businesses that will get our economy back on track.
“That’s why we welcome the Government’s commitment to work with business and invest heavily to begin the recovery.
“We believe the Government should focus on three key areas – supporting businesses to reopen and stay open, investing in our people and investing in infrastructure.  If the Government gets its policy settings right in these three areas, we believe it will give the business community the best chance to recover as quickly as possible. 
“It’s important that during the recovery the Government looks to reduce red tape and taxation to help businesses re-establish themselves.
“We look forward to working with the Government to get to work as soon as possible to create jobs and grow the economy.”
