Australia is one of the fastest growing developed economies thanks to its strong trade and economic links with countries in the Asia-Pacific. Business development opportunities come in this area, driven by the recent boom in Chinese demand for Australian commodities. Australia is the 13th largest economy in the world.
The country possesses a well-diversified and export-oriented economy, with a focus on minerals and energy (iron ore and coal), services products (education, travel), and pharmaceuticals.
