Welcome Premier Peter Gutwein

The Network would like to congratulate Peter Gutwein on becoming the new Premier of Tasmania.

Peter Gutwein was raised in Nunamara in Northern Tasmania and lives in the Tamar Valley with his family. He was previously Treasurer and Minister for the Environment, Parks and Heritage. Mr Gutwein is a qualified Financial Adviser and holds post graduate qualifications in Business Administration.

Mr Gutwein has promised to deliver a united government which will act on health, housing and climate change, as well as pushing for greater social inclusion.

“A rapidly changing climate is now the new norm and we must learn from the recent lessons of the mainland bushfires and once again, we must do more,” Mr Gutwein said in his first speech as Premier of Tasmania.

“My vision for the state is for a Tasmania, that no matter where you live, no matter what your background, no matter what your circumstances are, opportunity will be there and if you want to grasp those opportunities, a better life will be within your reach.”

The Network is excited to continue working to build a world class sustainable forest industry in Tasmania and welcome Premier Gutwein to our industry.
