[MEDIA RELEASE] Premier’s Economic and Social Recovery Advisory Council

The Northern Tasmania Development Corporation has welcomed the formation of the Premier’s Economic and Social Recovery Advisory Council announced yesterday.

The Recovery Council has the important task of devising a plan to restart the Tasmanian economy as it emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic and will be well served by the highly skilled members.

NTDC looks forward to understanding how the Recovery Council will operate and how we will engage on ways in which we know Northern Tasmania can play its part in the state’s economic and social reformation.

Chief executive Mark Baker said NTDC is working closely with regional stakeholders to examine what can be done now to mitigate economic decline and what we must plan to do once it is safe to restart our economy.

“Our resilience will be measured by the strength and speed of how we respond to adversity and we hope this regional collaboration will be of benefit to Northern Tasmania,” Mr Baker said.
