The Liberal Government has a vision of making Tasmania the best state in Australia to do business in.

This week’s hugely successful TasInvest summit has seen more than 275 business delegates in Tasmania to look at specific investment opportunities.

Today 30 Tasmanian businesses met individually with a group of over 50 Chinese delegates on the final day of TasInvest.

The structured ‘business to business’ matching session allowed Tasmanian business with investment proposals and products for export to meet one-on-one with Chinese delegates in their sector.

Professional and volunteer interpreters from the Tasmania Chinese Business Association were on hand to assist in early stage discussions.

Feedback from those participating has indicated that, for these businesses, it has provided an unparalleled opportunity to connect with key contacts from what is our largest trading partner.

TasInvest has led to huge excitement from both Tasmanian and Chinese businesses about the investment and job-creation potential in our state.

Over the coming days the Government will contact all delegates to follow up on what has been presented at TasInvest and offer investment facilitation services where needed.

These relationships will continue to be developed by both Tasmanian businesses and the Government through the Office of the Coordinator-General.
