Tasmania is a dynamic place to do business. It is an island of entrepreneurs, with 97% of the business population made up of small businesses
Tasmanians have a culture of solving problems and inventing new solutions, in everything from mining equipment to simulations. For decades, we have been applying these solutions to the defence industry where craft, precision, safety, strength, and sophistication matter
Tasmanians breathe some of the world’s cleanest air. We enjoy rainwater of exceptional purity and our soils are unusually rich and fertile. Tasmanians focus on quality – on growing and producing delicious food and beverages, and creating super fine wool.
Tasmania, a group of Australian islands washed by the unpolluted Southern Ocean, has won respect as a supplier of fine, safe food. More than a quarter of the total land area is committed to food production, while a 3,200km coastline is ideal for catching or growing excellent seafood.
Tasmanian forests are the ultimate renewable. The forestry sector is managed by strict environmental and sustainability principles and requirements. It carefully balances the preservation of this valuable natural resource while supporting an industry that provides wood and timber products globally.
Tasmania is among the most mineral-rich places on the planet. We can extract critical minerals for the future. We have smelters and processers powered by renewable energy and a culture that privileges hard work, new ideas, safety, technological innovation, and a commitment to environmental sustainability.
