The New Forest Industry Plan

the_plan.jpgOn February 2nd, 2010 the Tasmanian forest industry publicly launched its plan for the future.

Prepared in accordance with the provisions of the Regional Forest Agreement, the New Forest Industry Plan (The Plan) is a blueprint for future growth, innovation and wealth creation.

It identifies new investment opportunities in new product manufacture, wood processing and energy generation. The Plan also outlines how the industry might double its annual contribution to the state to $4 billion annually and create significant career opportunities for Tasmanians.

The Plan reflects the commitment by the industry to innovation, continuous improvement in forest practices and better environmental outcomes as it transitions to a more plantation-focused future.

It promotes safer, secure employment and career opportunities for people working in the industry and visiting our forests.

The Plan provides a catalyst for a partnership approach to developing positive government and industry programs and policy initiatives.

It provides a sound basis for delivering future planning and investment decisions which promote growth, drive investments in new value-adding technology and support profitable and competitive businesses.
