Tasmania's strong export growth has stalled and started to reverse and state Labor is blaming Premier Will Hodgman.
Labor Leader Rebecca White said the value of Tasmanian merchandise exports sent overseas dropped by 0.32 per cent in the year to August, while national export value grew by almost 18 per cent.
Ms White said Tasmanian producers were not getting the full benefits of positive trade conditions while Mr Hodgman "sat on his hands".
"Tasmania is an island state and we rely heavily on trade to grow jobs in Tasmania and support our economy," Ms White said.
"It's unforgivable that, in the Liberals' so-called golden age and with the Australian dollar at an 11-year low, these export numbers are going backwards.
"Tasmanian businesses deserve better than this laziness and inaction from Will Hodgman."
Mr Hodgman said: "Despite Labor's relentless negativity, Tasmania actually exported $3.71 billion in goods in the year to August 2019, which is 34.1 per cent more than in the year when we first came to government and only slightly off the record high achieved last year."
"Through our trade strategy, we will continue to build relationships in key markets and also diversify to mitigate against any volatility in international trade.
"Our plan is working, with Tasmania's exports to China up 8.8 per cent on the previous 12 months and exports to the USA up 12.4 per cent in the same period."
The Australian Bureau of Statistics original terms figures showed Tasmania exported $3.714 billion worth of goods in the year to August.
South Australia was the only other state or territory where export value declined.
Tasmania's drop was a sharp contrast to the increase in export value of more than 25 per cent recorded for the year to August 2018.
The figures did not appear to suggest the US-China trade war was to blame for the recent decline.
State Treasury analysis showed Tasmanian export value to mainland China increased by $130 million (12.3 per cent) during the year.
Export value to the US increased by $24 million (12.4 per cent).
Mainland China remained easily Tasmania's biggest export market.
It took $1.19 billion worth of Tasmanian goods during the year, 32 per cent of total export value.
Tasmania's next biggest customer was Japan (8.7 per cent), with Taiwan, Malaysia, South Korea, Indonesia, the US, Thailand, Vietnam and Hong Kong rounding out the top 10 in that order.
Exports of non-ferrous metals accounted for 39.7 per cent of export value.
They were followed by "other and confidential" at 22.1 per cent, metallic ores and metal scraps (15.9 per cent), meat (6.8 per cent), seafood (6.1 per cent) and dairy products (4 per cent).
Export value of vehicles including vessels had the strongest percentage increase for the year, by 80.7 per cent to $35 million.
Dairy also had strong growth, with export value increasing by 40.7 per cent to $149 million.
