HSBC Doing Business in Australia

Doing business in Australia

As the sixth biggest country[1] and 13th largest economy in the world[2], Australia is very important to the global economy. It is also a great place to live with Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide recently voted in the top 10 most liveable cities in the world[3].

Australia is an attractive place to do business due to political stability, a transparent legal system and a welcoming attitude towards foreign investment across a wide variety of sectors and assets. As a world leader in championing free trade with Free Trade Agreements with our major trading partners[4] and the strongest trade links with Asia of any OECD country[5].
