Tasmania, Australia , Sept. 16 -- The office of Tasmania Premier issued the following news release:

The biennial Tasmanian Timber Awards celebrated excellence in Tasmania's world-class forestry sector at a gala dinner in Launceston last night.

" Tasmania's forestry sector is world class, supplying around $1.2 billion annually to the State's economy, while providing 5700 direct and indirect jobs, many of these in regional communities," Minister Ellis said.
