Evaluating the market in Australia

We can help you get a better understanding of market activity, relationships and support to grow your business.

Business environment in Australia

Australia has experienced more than two decades of continuous economic expansion, during which it has progressed into a highly-developed country offering tremendous opportunity for Canadian companies in a variety of sectors. Openness to global trade and investment is firmly entrenched and is supported by a transparent business environment and well-established legal and regulatory regimes. Australia has strong economic ties with emerging and developed economies throughout the region, having recently concluded several trade agreements with key Asian partners. The country has been actively engaged in regional forums such as the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). As such, Canadian companies should look to leverage these connections or explore partnerships with Australian firms in order to capitalize on the abundant opportunities available in neighboring markets. EDC serves Canadian companies in Australia through our local representation in Sydney.
