Tasmania's small size and relative isolation have forced many local companies to turn to overseas markets for growth and prosperity - creating a diverse, export oriented economy. With its wealth of natural resources and business friendly culture, the State is home to a number of world-class firms in the manufacturing, food and beverage, agriculture, aquaculture and resource processing sectors.

Local exporters capitalising on Tasmania's pristine environment, low business costs and unique attributes are winning awards and orders from all over the world for their innovative products and uncompromising emphasis on quality.

This Government appreciates the expertise and competitiveness of Tasmania's exporters and I commend these Tasmanian firms to you and your visitors to for their quality and range of products.

Yours sincerely

Jim Bacon Premier Minister for State Development
