Future Directions - Finalised (708Kb)
Biosecurity is especially important to Tasmania becasue there are relatively fewer pests and diseases in our farmed and natural environment than elsewhere in Australia.
The Future Direction paper was developed after consultation held during March-April 2016 on a proposed position on what our biosecurity framework should look like in the future. A draft directions statement was released for comment in November 2016 and was finalised in early 2017.
