The new report pinpoints regions across the country where jobs in tourism, food processing, advanced manufacturing and creative industries really matter for local employment, and where policy makers and regional leaders should focus investment.

Tasmania has specialist areas of creative industries and tourism employment potential.

Hobart was recognised as 1 of 4 local Government areas nationally with strength in creative industries and Glamorgan Spring Bay and Tasman Council areas were 2 of the 4 areas highlighted for tourism growth.
