The state government is asking for businesses to take part in a feasibility study looking into establishing an Amazon marketplace in Tasmania.
The marketplace would work as a Tasmania-only sales platform that would help local businesses promote their products through the state’s reputation for quality, Trade Minister Jeremy Rockliff said.

“Amazon Australia has only been established for three years and yet already generates more than $500 million in revenue each year and presents significant opportunities for Tasmanian businesses who operate locally but seek to expand supply nationally,” he said.
“Amazon specialist agency Podean has been engaged to assist us to complete the feasibility study and they may seek more information from registered operators to build the business case for the Tasmanian Amazon marketplace.”
The study and marketplace are part of the Tasmanian Trade Strategy and Interim Trade Action Plan.
