Corporate Direction 2014-15
|The Corporate Direction 2014-15 identifies our priorities as well as our strategic risks, underlying values and our mission. It is a key part of our corporate planning framework.|
From the Secretary
2014-15 will be an exciting and challenging year for Treasury. Since the election of the Liberal Government we have worked closely with the Treasurer and other Ministers to help implement the Government’s 100 day plan and develop strategies to manage the challenges of the current budgetary and economic environment.
The Government has set an ambitious agenda to modernise the economy, make Tasmania more attractive for investment, create jobs and return the budget to a surplus.
We need to plan carefully to ensure that our resources are directed at achieving the Government’s objectives and to remain flexible to respond to changing priorities.
Although the current budgetary environment will be difficult to manage, I am confident that we will continue to deliver our day to day core tasks and new priorities.
