Australia is an exceptional place in which to do
business. Our strong economy, skilled and multilingual workforce,
competitive tax structure and stable political environment make us
an ideal location for foreign investment.
We also enjoy the benefits of relatively low set-up costs, easy
access to the Asia Pacific region, a vibrant financial services
sector and a time zone which accesses both the close of business in
the United States and trading opening in Europe.
As one of the fastest-growing economies in the OECD
(Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), Australia
comprises primary industries such as resources, energy and
agriculture, as well as rapidly-expanding secondary industries in
goods and services, lT, tourism and education.
Australia has built up bilateral trade relationships with Japan,
Indonesia, Malaysia, China and the United Arab Emirates over many
years and is party to a number of Free Trade Agreements, notably
with the United States, Thailand, New Zealand and Singapore.
Australia welcomes and seeks foreign investment, particularly if
it creates employment or introduces new technology. Increasing
numbers of international businesses are locating their regional
headquarters here, attracted by our temperate climate, relaxed
lifestyle, high standard of living and business sophistication.
This Doing Business In Australia publication answers the most
common questions and issues raised by foreign investors, importers
and exporters. This publication has been prepared by Corrs Chambers
Westgarth, one of Australia's leading law firms.
As laws concerning business and foreign investment are complex
and can change, this overview serves as a guide only and should not
be used as a substitute for specific legal advice on the
application of Australian law.
