Why Invest in Australia?

The Australian Government welcomes foreign investment. Australia provides a safe, easy, low-risk environment in which to invest and do business.

As the Australian Government's investment promotion agency, the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) works to inform investors about growth opportunities in five areas which play to our strengths – agribusiness and food, major infrastructure, tourism infrastructure, resources and energy, and advanced manufacturing, services and technology.

Africa Down Under Conference

Africa Down Under (ADU) continues to deliver the leading forum for Australia-Africa business relations. While the conference was introduced to raise awareness of Australia’s interests in African mining and energy, ADU has grown to become the largest African-focused mining event held outside the continent itself, and its importance continues to be reflected in the number of high profile attendees welcomed year after year to Perth.

Since the inaugural conference in 2003 ADU has assembled the best success stories from across Africa, and continues to demystify the notion that doing business in Africa is “too hard”.
