Foreign Investment in Australia – Part 1

May 31, 2019 by Mark White

Austrade works to inform investors about growth opportunities in these key areas:

  1. Agribusiness and food

With global food demand booming, Australia is ideally placed to become a premium food supplier and a long-term partner of choice in food security. Australia is keen to attract investment in innovation, agriculture production incorporating food and fibre products, and advanced food processing.

  1. Major infrastructure

Australia’s buoyant economy, increased trade footprint, growing population and substantial pipeline of projects provide the ideal conditions to invest in major infrastructure. As an underpinning for economic growth, the Australian Government has identified infrastructure development as a priority and plays a leading role in building the country’s assets, including road and rail networks. Significant opportunities exist for investors to finance, construct, own and operate Australia’s transport, utilities and social infrastructure.

  1. Tourism infrastructure

Australia’s tourism industry has been identified as a growth sector due to our proximity to the fast growing economies in Asia, unique natural wonders and food and wine experiences that are among the best in the world. As one of the world’s most transparent real estate markets and with strong growth in visitor numbers and trip spend, Australia’s tourism sector is attracting strong international investment interest.

Next week, we will discuss further opportunities for foreign investment in Australia.
