Tasmania is rich in mineral resources, and its volcanic soils and temperate climate are capable of producing far more primary produce than its small domestic population requires. As a result, a large proportion of Tasmanian produce needs to be sold to consumers interstate or overseas. This abundance may seem beneficial for the economy, but it can also make Tasmania vulnerable to the uncertainty and constant change of the world market.
