ENVIRONMENT, SOCIETY AND GOVERNMENT

Australia offers low pollution and population levels, word class education and medical systems, a safe community, and an overall high quality of life. The country provides a safe and low risk environment in which people can live and do business and is home to a long-standing parliamentary democracy ranked among the best in the world. This assists in providing a business-friendly regulatory environment and strong investment infrastructure, and subsequently, an increase in foreign investments.

ECONOMY

Australia has experienced consistent annual growth for over fifteen years, and consequently, an increasingly large number of people are choosing to migrate here. The economy is ranked the 12th largest in the world by GDP.  Large industries include mineral and energy resources, agricultural industries, property development and biomedical research. These industries open a wide range of investment and career opportunities for migrants.

GLOBAL REACH

Australia is well-positioned for trade in the international arena; not only does it provide strong trade, investments and cultural links with the Asia-Pacific region, it also provides a bridge with twenty-four-hour connectivity between major time zones in Europe, Asia and the Americas. Additionally, the trade agreements currently in place ensure an uninterrupted flow of goods, services and investments with other major economies.

Australia is also strategically situated in the Asia Pacific region.  East coast capitals such as Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne are +1 hour time difference with Tokyo and Seoul and +2 hours with Beijing, Hongkong and Taipei.  This means that migrants with businesses in Asia can still operate their businesses in real time.  It also presents a range of opportunities for those wishing to develop import and export businesses in Australia in connection with Asian economies.
