City Economy Strategy

The City of Hobart has developed a new City Economy Strategy to identify, promote and capitalise on the 'Hobart Difference' for the benefit of all those who live, work and do business in the city.

This strategy sets the vision and priorities that will position Hobart for future social and economic prosperity, enabling our businesses and resident communities to respond to and thrive from the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

Strategic Priorities

Plan for our collective social, economic, and environmental prosperity.

Attract responsible investment to unlock an inventive and inclusive economy.

Position Hobart as an enviable place to visit, live and do business.

Promote and leverage Hobart's uniqueness and celebrate the Hobart Difference.

This strategy was developed through a community consultation process to incorporate the thoughts, experiences and ideas of business owners, developers, residents, researchers and representatives across all levels of government. The major themes were incorporated into the strategy to define our priorities, establish outcomes and formalise the role of the City in supporting economic prosperity.
