Tasman is a region which aspires to digital success for all, and where connectivity is part of everyday life.
What does that mean?
- Our communities take collective responsibility for the digital success of our region.
- Business and employment growth are supported through tools and education to support our transition to business digital success.
- Our communities are able to be connected and have opportunities to learn and use digital technology.
