Event Overview

Tasmania: Jobs, Population & Migration

Tasmania is growing and with this transformation comes boundless opportunities to rethink what regional Australia means. This change is also bringing many challenges for our regions with population growth and migration high on the agenda in Tasmania.

Regions Rising Tasmania is part of the RAI’s national roadshow where we use our evidence based research to present facts, bring key regional stakeholders together, and work collaboratively to change the narrative of regional Australia.

Join us in Hobart on 7 November and be part of the conversation about the future of regional Tasmania, where The Hon. Will Hodgman MP, Premier of Tasmania will be the keynote speaker and share his vision for Tasmania.

Listen to our lineup of speakers from government, industry and community leaders share their strategies and plans about how they are addressing their workforce issues and collectively putting into action solutions for the future that will drive and support population, migration and jobs.
