Welcome from the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) team in North America…
Australia’s relationships with the United States and Canada are deep, enduring and broad - reflecting our shared past and common values. Political, economic, academic, and people-to-people ties are vibrant and strong.
The US remains Australia’s indispensable economic partner. The cumulative value of two-way investment between the US and Australia reached A$1.48 trillion (US$1.10 trillion) in 2016. The US is the largest source of foreign direct investment into Australia, with many American companies well established in the Australian market. Australia is also a significant investor in the United States and an integral part of US growth across all 50 states.
Canada is a vital trade and investment partner for Australia. Canadian investment in Australia reached A$42.6 billion (C$41 billion) in 2016. Australia is Canada’s largest destination for foreign direct investment in the Asia-Pacific, and is the fourth largest source for FDI into Canada. Canada is an attractive market for Australian exporters and investors, while the Canadian business presence in Australia also continues to grow.
In 2019 we will bring delegations showcasing Australia’s best in:
Resources & Energy
These delegations provide an opportunity to showcase Australian innovation and to highlight investment and collaborative opportunities to North American companies. Whether you are an Australian startup aiming to enter the North American market, or a North American professional seeking to collaborate with Australian talent and innovation, Austrade can connect you with the right partners.
We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our bilateral relationships. We have eight offices across Canada and the US. Please contact us at either USA@austrade.gov.au or Canada@austrade.gov.au. We look forward to hearing from you!
Celebrating 100 Years
The Australian Embassy’s First 100 Years of Mateship campaign celebrates the unique partnership between Australia and the United States, based on shared values, mutual respect and the deep friendship between our people.
Our mateship was born in the trenches of WW1, when Australian and American soldiers fought together for the first time at the Battle of Hamel – under the command of Australian General Sir John Monash. Since then, Australia is the only nation to have fought alongside the United States in every major conflict of the past century.
As mates past, present and future, Australia and the United States work closely together to make the world more safe and secure, to increase prosperity for our people and create new opportunities for business and investment.
