A 20-YEAR economic vision for Tasmania, to be unveiled in the first half of this year, will underpin the Australian Greens Party's policy agenda for the state.
Tasmanian Senator Peter Whish-Wilson, who replaced former leader Bob Brown last year, is spearheading the development of the plan, which must first be approved by members.
He is set to unveil the new document at his campaign launch, likely to be in April or May ahead of the September 14 federal election.
While he was tight-lipped about the direction of the document yesterday, Senator Whish-Wilson said it would identify economic risks for the state and 15 areas of focus.
``It will show a vision of the type of economy we would like to see as a party and what we believe is doable,'' Senator Whish-Wilson said.
``It won't just be `green economy', there'll be something for everyone.''
Senator Whish-Wilson, who has been a finance lecturer at the University of Tasmania and co-owns a vineyard, said he had consulted widely with businesses and industry leaders.
He said the plan would recommend ways to build on the economic transition already under way in the state.
The plan will replace the now outdated ``business and industry strategy'' developed in 1992.
At a speech at the Canberra launch of the Griffith Review's Tasmania edition, Senator Whish-Wilson said much of the 1992 report which first used the quote ``clean, green and clever'' to describe potential new industries in the state was still relevant.
Senator Whish-Wilson's work is separate to the economic plan being developed by the Tasmanian Greens, which is also due to be released in the first half of this year.
