    CHENNAI: Tremendous opportunities exist for collaboration between Indian and Australian firms in sectors such as education, services, healthcare, building, construction, design, aerospace and aviation, Australian Consul General and Trade Commissioner for south India Aminur Rahman said here on Friday.

    Australian economy had shown a strong and sustained growth and had a low unemployment rate of 5.1 per cent in 2005, he said while making a presentation on `Doing business with Australia,' organised as part of a workshop on Australian visa procedures and business opportunities by the Indo-Australian Chamber of Commerce.

    Bilateral relations were in good shape. There was a surge in services exports from Australia to India. It touched Australian Dollar 1.415 billion during 2005-06. Over Australian Dollar one billion worth of investment was flowing in each direction. The Australian Trade Commission, the Australian government's main export and international business facilitation agency, could help Indian businesses forge ties with Australian counterparts. Some of the advantages of doing business with Australia were excellent R&D, infrastructure, telecommunications and information technology systems, highly skilled multilingual workforce, efficient regulatory environment and a strategic time zone, he added. Sonya Boylan, Second Secretary (Immigration), Australian High Commission, New Delhi; C. Sarat Chandran and P. Gopalakrishnan, director and secretary of the Chamber, were present.
