Australia combines a vast reservoir of natural resources – including iron ore, coal, gold and gas – with a strong and well-developed manufacturing and services economy.

Australia is a key player in the fast-growing Asia-Pacific region, but also works closely with the UK on political and economic issues. Around 1,000 UK companies are doing business in Australia each day, and UK exports to Australia have grown almost 80 per cent since 2007.

OVERVIEW
Australia’s position as the sixth largest country in the world, a per capita GDP comparable with European economies such as the UK and Germany, and a trade policy supporting liberalisation and increased economic activity, all make Australia an attractive destination for British businesses. Key economic reforms implemented since the 1980s have transformed Australia into an open, internationally competitive, trade oriented economy. Australia’s proximity to Asia Pacific and the demand for mineral exports like iron ore, coal and copper from countries such as China, has helped its continuous growth and resilience during recent global financial and economic downturns. The economic growth has recently slowed, but still achieved 3.1% year on year, and the Q4 2012 interest rate reduction to 3%, intended to counteract a slowdown in the mining sector and assist other sectors in keeping the economy growing, mean opportunities for British businesses are significant. The shared language, culture and history make Australia an easier country for companies looking to start out in international trade, and its proximity to Asia Pacific means Australia provides a gateway for British businesses looking for further expansion.
