10 benefits of emigrating to Australia

1. Australia is a nation founded on immigration. Of 22 million Australians,the majority are descendants of nineteenth and twentieth-century European settlers,mainly from the UK (from England,Scotland,Wales) and from Ireland. However,the country’s population has quadrupled since the end of World War I,due to the introduction of an ambitious immigration programme,and today,Australia’s population is incredibly diverse,with many foreign-born citizens and residents from every corner of the globe.

2. Australia has a prosperous,Western-style economy,with a GDP per-capita estimated last year at US$43.300,outmatching the UK’s US$37.500.

3. Despite the country’s healthy economy,a shortage of skilled workers is still a problem which Australia is currently addressing. Jobs abound for skilled tradespeople and investors and the opportunity to become part of Australia and enjoy its unparalleled lifestyle is wide open to anyone who possesses the required skills or business knowledge.

4. Trades and professions in Australia can be considerably better paid than their counterparts from Britain and elsewhere. In some areas of Australia,bricklayers,electricians,carpenters and mechanics can earn upwards of AU$3500 per month. Professionals,such as teachers and architects can earn around AU$6500 per month and above.

5. Australia’s deregulated economy makes it an ideal country for business investment. The country also benefits from substantial natural resources and technical strength and a tax system that competes with all other western economies. Business visas are a popular choice for migrants

6. Housing is an affordable,high standard compared to other countries,and the quality of schools,hospitals and public transport reflect the exceptional quality of life that Australians enjoy. The country’s healthcare provision involves a mixture of private and state-funded systems working in sync.

7. The landscape and climate of Australia is stunning and highly varied. Ranging from the lush rain-forests of Northern Queensland and the Northern Territory to Sydney’s Blue Mountains,from the vast outback to the Great Barrier Reef,Australia has diverse scenery that attracts thousands of tourists and residents alike every year to explore its varied landscapes,from the shores of Western Australia,to New South Wales and Victoria in the east. Although Australia’s climate is varied,you can always expect an average minimum temperature in the 20's in the summer months no matter where you reside, and in most areas, this average is far higher.

8. English is the national language and is spoken at home by 80% of the population. Virtually all of those who do not speak it at home are bilingual, so communication with others is never a problem.

9. Australians are sport-obsessed and love living an outdoor lifestyle. Major sports in Australia include the country’s national sports of cricket, rugby union, rugby league and Australian Rules football, as well as hockey, netball and soccer.

10. Despite all that goes on in Australia, the lifestyle is in fact extremely relaxed and laid back. Class boundaries do not exist is the same ways that they do in countries such as the UK, and a sense of everyone contributing to society in their own way prevails.

Australian law

More interesting facts about the Australian economy

Australia’s economic freedom score is 80.9,making its economy the 5th freest in the 2018 Index. Its overall score has decreased by .1 points,with higher scores for the government integrity and government spending indicators offset by declines in labour freedom and property rights. Australia is ranked 4th among 43 countries in the Asia–Pacific region,and its overall score is well above the regional and world averages.

Although facing a structural change as sharply lower global commodity prices undermine mining investment,Australia’s robust free-market democracy benefits from an effective system of government that facilitates vibrant entrepreneurial development. With almost all industries open to foreign competition and a skilled workforce readily available,Australia continues to be an attractive and dynamic destination for investment. The government has withdrawn from most areas of the market,and government debt,rising since the global financial crisis,remains relatively low.

Background on the economy

Australia is one of the wealthiest Asia–Pacific nations and has enjoyed more than two decades of economic expansion. It emerged from the 2009 global recession relatively unscathed,but stimulus spending by the previous Labour government generated a fiscal deficit that has continued under subsequent Liberal governments. Malcolm Turnbull,a former businessman and communications minister,replaced Tony Abbott as head of the ruling Liberal-National coalition and as prime minister in 2015. Australia is internationally competitive in services,technologies,and high-value-added manufactured goods. According to its Department of Industry,Innovation and Science,services (especially financial and insurance services) account for more than 60 percent of GDP. Mining and agriculture are important sources of exports.

The rule of law

Australia’s stable political environment supports transparent and well-established political processes,a robust legal system,competent governance,and an independent bureaucracy based on the UK legal system. The strong rule of law protects property rights and mitigates corruption. Expropriation is highly unusual,and enforcement of contracts is reliable. The judicial system operates independently and impartially. Anti-corruption measures are generally effective.

The size of the Australian government

The top income tax rate is 45 percent,and the flat corporate tax rate is 30 percent. Other taxes include value-added and capital gains taxes. The overall tax burden equals 27.8 percent of total domestic income. Over the past three years,government spending has amounted to 36 percent of total output (GDP),and budget deficits have averaged 2.8 percent of GDP. Public debt is equivalent to 41.1 percent of GDP.

Regulatory effectiveness

Australia’s regulatory environment is one of the world’s most transparent and efficient and very supportive of entrepreneurship. In 2016,registering a business took less than three days. The labour market is well supported by the modern and flexible employment code. The government continues to fund multi-billion-dollar subsidies for clean and renewable energy but eliminated its farm export subsidies in May 2017.

Open for investment

Trade is moderately important to Australia’s economy;the combined value of exports and imports equals 40 percent of GDP. The average applied tariff rate is 1.9 percent. Non-tariff barriers impede some trade. In general,government policies do not significantly interfere with foreign investment. The financial sector is competitive and well developed. All banks are privately owned and subject to prudent regulations.
