Investing in Australia
Australia is one of the most attractive investment destinations in the Asia Pacific Region. A dynamic business environment, strong economic and cultural ties with Asia, highly skilled and low cost work force, competitive infrastructure and telecommunications costs are supported by a stable political environment and enviable life style.
The Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) is responsible for the facilitation of foreign direct investment into Australia and for the promotion of Australia as an internationally competitive place to do business.
Austrade helps international companies establish and build their business in Australia. We are the first national point-of-contact for all investment inquiries and offer free, comprehensive and confidential assistance.
Austrade understands the challenges of investing. We provide the information required to make a good investment decision and to provide a coordinated approach that saves investors time and money. Austrade can assist with:
Information on the business environment: covering issues such as business costs, the taxation regime, investment regulations, skills availability and immigration.
Market intelligence reports/Executive briefs: specific information on Australia's capabilities across a wide range of industry sectors.
Site visits: assistance to identify the most suitable location and potential partners in Australia for your business, in conjunction with relevant State and Territory investment agencies and industry groups.
Australian Government programs: advice on the Government’s industry development programs that may be applicable to your business, including support for research, development, innovation and export activities.
Government approval processes: advice on government approvals required for your business and help to streamline the relevant processes.
