UK and Australia - a strong investment relationship

  • The UK is the second largest source of total foreign direct investment (FDI) into Australia, behind only the USA.
  • The UK is the second largest destination for Australian direct investment offshore.
  • Investment from the UK into Australia has been growing strongly in recent years, and accounted for the second highest growth by value of any foreign investor from 2010 - 2014.

As British firms increasingly look to diversify their export markets, the prospects for further British investment into Australia will continue to ensure the strength, relevance and growth of the UK / Australia economic relationship.

The Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) is keen to hear from British firms wishing to establish a presence in Australia. Contact us today to find out how Austrade UK can assist your firm to be part of this growing business exchange.
