Australia welcomes dynamic foreign investment and is one of the most attractive business locations in the world. With a relatively deregulated and open economy, Australia offers opportunities from a broad range of diverse industries, providing investors with a stable political and economic environment, as well as a skilled and multilingual workforce.

In order to attract foreign investors, the government has almost halved tariff rates on imports in the last decade.

Additionally, other major tax changes have resulted in substantial cuts to the corporate tax rate. The Australian government encourages foreign investment with a transparent and liberal screening process. While certain investments require prior approval, there are currently no general foreign exchange restrictions.
