CommSec’s latest ‘State of the States’ report shows that Tasmania is Australia’s best performing economy for a third successive quarter. Tasmania is ranked first with regard to a number of indicators, including housing finance and retail trade. Craig James of CommSec says there is a link between a state’s success in suppressing COVID-19 and its economic performance. Tasmania has had no recorded cases since August, and the release of the CommSec report coincides with Tasmania’s borders being re-opened to all other states except Victoria and New South Wales.
