Newsletter April 2024

Message from the Chair

Before the dust has even settled on the makeup of the next state parliament, we have some very important elections coming up in the Legislative Council for the seats Hobart, Elwick and Prosser.

We will be holding a candidates’ forum on Tuesday 16th April for the seat of Hobart. All candidates will be announced on Friday 12th April and we endeavour to have as many as possible in attendance.

For the sake of small business and the wider community we want to see a stable parliament. There is no appetite for further elections any time soon.

The Liberals are going to form a minority Government and I urge their new minority partners to let them deliver on their recently made promises and platforms.

Chair, Confederation of Greater Hobart Business
