The Australian market is a prime destination for investment owing to its readily skilled workforce, highly developed infrastructure and most importantly, industries that are open to foreign competition. Particularly, with the withdrawal of the government in most areas of the market, the financial services sector has seen such increasing competition. It is also home to one of the world’s most transparent and efficient regulatory environments, making it highly conducive to entrepreneurship. Alongside this, Australia has an abundance of natural resources, and is a leading exporter of energy resources, minerals and coal.
