No matter how small, submitting your issues play an important role in helping TCCI identify important policy themes and business trends across the state and by region.

Please keep in mind that just because certain issues may be considered common, it does not necessarily mean they are currently occurring or that their causes are the same; a common issue is still an important one.

Your input is vital in ensuring we are aware of the most pressing concerns facing business in Tasmania.
