Event overview

The recent state election in Tasmania has brought the winds of change to the island state. Front of mind for business, government and the community is how the State can turn its comparative advantages into a new generation of economic growth across all regions.

The current state of Tasmania's economic statistics and fiscal circumstances is well documented. However, talking down the State's economic prospects is not going to change the game, what will, is capitalising on the momentum to bring fresh ideas to growing the state's economic base - from aged care, to tourism, to agribusiness and advanced manufacturing.

The role of enabling technologies in transformation is a key feature of any discussion around modernising economies and industries. CEDA's first research report for 2014, Advanced Manufacturing: Beyond the production line touches on exactly that - how these technologies can improve productivity, competitiveness and responsiveness in local economies.
