Minister’s visit a prime time to showcase Tasmania

Nationals Senator for Tasmania Steve Martin is looking forward to showcasing the quality work of Tasmanian producers to the Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, the Hon David Littleproud MP, when he visits the State next week.

The two Nationals will make joint announcements during the visit to the North of the State on Tuesday and Wednesday.

“Minister Littleproud’s visit to Tasmania will be an exciting time for the State and I’m looking forward to him meeting the hardworking farmers, saw millers, brewers, distillers and small business owners across our regional cities and communities,” Senator Martin said.

“Tasmanian producers are helping to put Tassie back on the map in regards to the State being a more productive powerhouse of quality goods and services exported to the rest of the world.

“This will be the Minister’s first official visit to Tasmania and it is so encouraging that he has accepted my invitation to inspect firsthand the agricultural, aquaculture, forestry, and wine making, brewing and distilling might of the State.

“Minister Littleproud is fully aware that better and stronger regions are built through sustainably tapping into the natural resources of an area with the flow-on effects being more jobs and a stronger local economy.”

Senator Martin said more details about the announcements and visits will be released early next week.
