1.47 trillion Australian dollars and counting, this is the amount of bilateral investment between the United States of America and Australia with the major chunk of US investments of nearly 860 billion dollar in Australia by developing and establishing subsidiaries, making United States the largest investors in Australia.
Why do US companies prefer Australia?
In the past, economic historians have classified Australia as a resource rich country which lacked capital investments but the situation has changed in the last few decades. With the influx of overseas foreign investment mainly from the United States, Australia has surpassed other Asia Pacific countries in attracting the FDI, transforming itself into a technologically advanced and prosperous country.
Australia has an economically & politically stable environment with abundant availability of natural resources like gold, iron ore, uranium and other precious metals along with the right kind of skilled workforce driving US multinational companies to invest in Australia.
One of the major assets of Australia has been its workforce. Australian work force comprises of highly educated, multicultural and multilingual skilled professionals from across the world, which has been possible because of Australia’s flexible and liberal immigration policy.
One of the popular immigration policies of Australia is the Australian permanent residency visa which enables an individual to become permanent resident of Australia and obtain Australia Citizenship in due course of time.
Today, Australian banks and businesses are heavily reliant on US capital. The presence of more than 1500 plus US companies in New South Whales alone and other US affiliated firms in major cities of Australia provide job opportunities for more than 300 thousand professionals in Australia.
