Bell Bay growth plan

Tasmania's Bell Bay Industrial Precinct is to get some special attention to stimulate growth and create more employment.

An experienced project officer will be hired in a joint funding initiative by the state government, the George Town Council and Bell Bay's existing businesses.

State government MP Sarah Courtney expects the right person for the job will be crucial for opening up opportunities.

"Bell Bay produces around 60% of Tasmania's manufactured exports, so it's absolutely critical for both the economy and also jobs in Northern Tasmania and we want to see resilience in this industrial precinct into the future."
