Over the past decade, Tasmania has experienced substantially improved economic performance. By and large, however, this performance has been driven by increased retail spending and housing construction, and has not been matched by significantly improved production or export performance. While on many economic measures Tasmania has closed the gap with the mainland states over the last decade, we have seen only small increases in the value of goods and services that Tasmania sells to the world, the mainland included.
