first_imgAccepting all PESRAC recommendations Peter Gutwein,PremierLast year I established the Premier’s Economic and Social Recovery Advisory Council (PESRAC), to provide advice to the Government on strategies and initiatives to support the short to medium, and the longer term recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.Today I am making the final PESRAC report public, and the Government will accept all 52 recommendations.We have faced our darkest hour in Tasmania and we now have the opportunity to start our next chapter, grasping bold new opportunities to stand us in good stead for the future, create jobs and continue to grow the economy.PESRAC’s report presents future-focused opportunities, and my Government has shown it has the courage and decision-making initiative to make that happen.The report takes a whole-of-state approach, and identifies priority areas, looking for the common themes across people, place and sectors.The Council consulted extensively and heard from around 3500 Tasmanians through one of the largest listening exercises undertaken in recent years.The 52 recommendations from PESRAC are across five key priority areas. These are:*Jobs and income;*Health and housing;*Community: Connectivity and Engagement;*Environment and Sustainability;*Public Sector Capability.We are committed to delivering on these recommendations, and we are excited about the bold opportunities they will create for our State and our people in this next chapter.Together, we have a plan to secure Tasmania’s future.PESRAC’s final report is available at /Public Release.

Since the trend of consolidation is and has historically been upward, fewer and fewer individuals or organizations control increasing shares of the mass media in our country. According to independent assessment, about 98% of the media sector is held by three conglomerates. This tendency is not only totally unacceptable, but also to a degree frightening).
