Let's ensure we can attract and sustain a solid performing economy that builds on our city’s uniqueness and promotes our entrepreneurs.


Launceston is the biggest city in northern Tasmania. We have a role and responsibility to lead our regional economy. A healthy economy is more than just numbers on a spreadsheet; it means work opportunities, a vibrant city, diverse population, creative and innovative solutions, and a city we are proud of.

To grow our economy and population we need to have a robust conversation about the need to shift our economy so we thrive.
