Investment Environment

Why invest in Australia?

Strong Economic Credentials
Australia’s reputation as a highly competitive economy continues to strengthen. In 2009, the Australian economy ranked in the top three countries in the Asia-Pacific region for its overall competitiveness.

Growing Foreign Investment
Australia is seen as an attractive destination for foreign direct investment (FDI). Over the last five years, inward FDI stock has increased by an average of 5.8 per cent per annum. Australia now attracts a high level of FDI compared to other developed economies.

Democracy and Stable Politics
Australia is a safe destination for investment. The country’s political and regulatory environment is stable, open and progressive, providing investors with a high degree of confidence and certainty.

Business Friendly Regulatory
Australia has one of the most transparent and efficient regulatory environments in the world. Through proactive reforms, the Australian Government has shown a strong commitment to providing businesses with the right conditions for growth and investment.

Good Environment
With one of the highest standards of living in the world, Australia offers a superb climate, a unique and beautiful environment, and quality social and cultural infrastructure. Australian cities have been among the most livable cities in the world concluded by a range of international surveys.

Strategic Location
The growing importance of the Asia-Pacific region as a source of world economic growth means Australia occupies a strategic location for business opportunities in Asia. Australia is well placed to capitalise on growth in China and India. Its relative proximity to and strong trade links with these two countries mean that Australia’s geographic location is in itself a significant asset.
