Economic Development Strategy 2013 - 2018

The City of Hobart’s Economic Development Strategy 2013 - 2018(PDF, 311KB) complements the City of Hobart's existing Vision 2025 Strategic Plan. Although we recognise there are many important economic activities that exist within the City, the strategy is based on the areas where we can make the most difference.

The strategy focuses on five priority areas:

  • Understanding the economic drivers for a local or regional community

  • Understanding the weaknesses, vulnerabilities and opportunities within communities

  • Seeking to broaden the economic base and minimise impacts

  • Establishing strategic alliances and relationships with existing or potential businesses / markets

  • Creating networks within communities to build relevance, engagement and participation 

* Work is currently underway on the new economic development strategy to reflect local, regional and global changes that are affecting Hobart.
