Australia's economy needs big investment in innovation, experts say
When Malcolm Turnbull took over as Prime Minister he promised that, with the mining boom over, innovation would be the key to unlocking jobs and growth. But, two-and-a-half years later, those responsible for commercialising new ideas say Australia is being left behind with sustained cuts to higher education and low business investment in research and development. One of the Government's own advisers says Australia is comparable to third world economies reliant on old industries like banking and mining, against countries like the US where the top companies are all high-tech.

Economy Of Australia
The '''economy of Australia''' is developed and one of the largest mixed market economies in the world, with a G D P of A U D $1.69 trillion as of 2017. Australia is the second wealthiest nation in terms of wealth per adult, after Switzerland. Australia's total wealth was A U D $8.9 trillion as of June 2016. In 2016, Australia was the 14th largest national economy by nominal G D P, 20th largest by P P P -adjusted G D P, and was the 25th-largest goods exporter and 20th-largest goods importer. Australia took the record for the longest run of uninterrupted G D P growth in the developed world with the March 2017 financial quarter, the 103rd quarter and 26 years since Australia had a technical recession ( two consecutive quarters of negative growth ) . The Australian economy is dominated by its service sector, comprising 61.1% of the G D P and employing 79.2% of the labour force in 2016. East Asia ( including A S E A N and other Northeast Asia countries ) is a top export destination, accounting for about 64% of exports in 2016. Australia has the eighth highest total estimated value of natural resources, valued at US$19.9 trillion in 2016. At the height of the mining boom in 2009-10, the total value-added of the mining industry was 8.4% of G D P . Despite the recent decline in the mining sector, the Australian economy has remained resilient and stable and has not experienced a recession since July 1991. The Australian Securities Exchange in Sydney is the 16th largest stock exchange in the world in terms of domestic market capitalisation and has the largest interest rate derivatives market in Asia. Some of Australia's large companies include but are not limited to: Wesfarmers, Woolworths, Rio Tinto Group, B H P Billiton, Commonwealth Bank, National Australia Bank, Westpac, A N Z, Telstra and Caltex Australia. The currency of Australia and its territories is the Australian dollar which it shares with several Pacific nation states. Australia is a member of the A P E C, G20, O E C D and W T O . The country has also entered into free trade agreements with A S E A N, Canada, Chile, China, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore, Thailand and the United States. The A N Z C E R T A agreement with New Zealand has greatly increased integration with the economy of New Zealand and in 2011 there was a plan to form an Australasian Single Economic Market by 2015.

Gold mining industry
The mining industry has grown our GDP, employed our population and trained our next generation. The gold industry in Western Australia accounts for 68 per cent of Australia's overall gold production, with Australia being the world's second-largest gold producer. Gold is our third-largest mineral export, and in the 2015-16 financial year our gold exports were valued at some $16 billion, with that number likely to increase again this financial year.

Australia is facing financial MELTDOWN
Five charts that show why Australia is facing financial MELTDOWN UNEMPLOYMENT in Australia is rising and economic growth is slowing with experts fearing the country is about to go through a significant downturn. Resource-rich Australia has benefited hugely from the exponential growth in China's economy in recent years, by supplying the raw materials that has powered the Asian boom. In line with the rise in supplying China, Australia switched from an economy making its own goods to one that digs materials out of the ground. Mining as a percentage of Australian GDP has jumped to 8.6 per cent, while manufacturing has steadily dropped. But now the colossal Chinese economy is slowing down and, as Australia's top export destination, the abating is expected to have a big impact.

China's demand spurs Australian mining boom - 9 Jan 09
Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Australia has been one of the beneficiaries of China's economic growth over the last two years. Despite cooling off slightly during the global economic crisis, China's continuing demand for raw materials has been a major boost to the Australian mining industry. China's need for commodities such as iron ore is helping mineral-rich Western Australia lead the rest of the country to recovery. Al Jazeera's Aella Callan reports from the small coastal town of Geraldton, where plans are under way to build a new deep water port by 2012 to keep up with the demand from China and other emerging economies in Asia.

Australian miner Rio Tinto is about to open one of the biggest copper mines on the planet in Mongolia, which will soon account for more than 30% of the country's entire GDP. "Some of the optimistic geologists we have say that this business could run for up to 100 years", Cameron McRae from Rio Tinto explains. But the company only cedes the Mongolian government a 34% stake, provoking worries about where the benefits of Mongolia's resource wealth will go. There's concerns the government is ill-equipped to strike complex mining deals in the national interest. "The deal is a financial transaction and whether it's really beneficial to Mongolia, I have many doubts about that", argues Dorjdari from the Responsible Mining Initiative. Environmentalists also worry that the mining push has come so fast and so aggressively that proper checks and balances are not in place. "Most tourists come to Mongolia because they want to see that pristine open space blue sky, but what if we couldn't offer it anymore?"

China and Australia on path to recovery?
Today, the US dollar has advanced notably against the Chinese yuan. The dollar/yuan pair is trading at the fresh intraday highs. In the early session, the dollar/yuan pair was trading flat for a while. Then, it headed upward and reached the level of 6.5915. China’s currency was affected by the manufacturing PMI in the latest Caixin survey. The actual figure fell short of expectations. According to the Caixin survey, business activity in the manufacturing sector has been gauged below the median 50 points for 15 months in a row that indicates contraction. So the manufacturing PMI slipped to 49.2 in May from 49.4 in April. Caixin analysts think the indicator has been falling due to lower demand for services and shrinking investments. Unlike Caixin survey tracking small and medium-sized companies, the official gauge focuses on large and state-owned enterprises. The official report from China’s National Bureau of Statistics revealed the index has hit the key level of 50 for the third straight month. The official manufacturing PMI came in at 50.1 in May, unchanged from April. The index is a tick higher than the 50 median reading. These reports revived doubts over the steady recovery in China’s industry. Such uncertain prospects have put pressure on the Chinese currency. Experts warned investors that business activity in the manufacturing sector is set to decline in the near future as export orders have fallen for the second straight month. Besides, it is important to take into account the country which directly depends on China’s economy. Today, Australia released the GDP data for the first quarter. Australia’s Bureau of Statistics reported that GDP rose by 1.1% in the first quarter surpassing expectations of 0.8% growth. Annual growth stepped up to 3.1%. Experts note that the economic growth was mainly driven by the mining sector which expanded by 6.2%. However, the strong US dollar is trying to depress the Australian rival as the anticipation of the funds rate hike sets the tone for trading. The market absorbed the optimistic message in the latest speech of US Fed Chair Janet Yellen. Nowadays, the market is certain that the US central bank is due to tighten monetary policy in the nearest months. This move is likely to increase pressure of the US dollar on the basket of the majors. https://www.instaforex.com

Asian Focus: Australia struggles; October RBA rate cut expected
In this video Yvette Roper of TradingFloor.com video interviews Andrew Robinson, Market Analyst for Saxo Capital Markets in Singapore about the Australian economy which is perhaps starting to suffer from the global slowdown.Australia's Q2 GDP figures were quite solid. A fairly good contribution from household spending was a surprise, particularly considering that the rest of the economy, apart from the mining sector, is really struggling, says Andrew. Australia is however facing headwinds, mainly stemming from the China slowdown threat and its impact on the mining and resource sector. The third quarter could well be a struggle and as such it might be difficult for the Reserve Bank of Australia to achieve its 3.75 percent growth forecast for the year, says Andrew.At its latest policy meeting the Reserve Bank of Australia kept its benchmark rate unchanged at 3.5 percent for the third straight month. In light of the worsening China situation and the subsequent effect on the Australian economy expectations are increasing that the RBA will cuts its key rate at its next meeting on October 2. The market expects a 50 percent chance of a 25 basis point cut. "The chances are now more likely than they were at the beginning of this month," says Andrew.The Australian dollar has also been struggling of late as pure fundamentals finally catch up with this otherwise strong commodity driven currency. In the last month alone it has fallen 4.2 percent against the USD, 4.6 percent against the JPY and a massive 6.7 percent against the EUR. It has fallen the most against the latter currency because the Euro has seen some recovery in anticipation of European Central Bank rescue measures for troubled European nations. "The few props that have supported the Aussie dollar over the last 18 months to 2 years are slowly being eroded away," says Andrew.Andrew also commented on the latest employment figures from Australia which on a headline basis were poor with 8,800 jobs lost to the economy in August. Closer scrutiny of the data revealed that all the job losses were in the part-time category, with just a few jobs added in the full-time category. "That took a bit of the sting out of the negativity of the headline," says Andrew. The unemployment rate improved to 5.1 percent but this can be largely explained by a fall in the participation rate to 65 percent from 65.2 percent, which is the lowest it has been since October 2007.See more of Andrew's Asian market commentary on TradingFloor.com

Which ASX industry and stock will be impacted by the Chinese economy
Before asking Greg and Chris to share their thoughts on the companies and sectors that will be impacted the most by a volatile Chinese stock market, Shepherd asked attendees which trend they believe will impact the ASX over the next 12 months. 45 per cent believe China will create the biggest impact, followed by rising US interest rates (39 per cent) and oil prices (16 per cent). Greg Canavan believes Australia’s banking sector will feel the biggest brunt from China’s slowing economy. “The Chinese economy has been slowing for four years now. Australia’s big mining companies were the first ones to be hit. Now that the slowdown has worked it’s was into the heart of China’s economy, its the banks turn.”, Greg said. Part of the offset of the China slowdown has been lower interest rates, the impact of which has been a housing boom in Australia. And Australia’s banks have done very well from this trend. Greg added, “If China’s economy slows more than what the market thinks, then the demand for Australia’s exports will slow, which in turn will see Australia’s economy slow down. A slowdown in our economy will impact the housing market and ultimately the banks that lend the money to homeowners.” Looking at Australia’s largest bank, Commonwealth Bank, Greg said the biggest risk is around CBA’s ability to maintain its high dividend. A slowdown in revenue growth or an increase in bad debts will ultimately impact dividends paid by Australia’s Big 4 banks. Chris Batchelor agrees with Greg, adding that Australia’s mining sector will continue to suffer, along with companies selling their goods and services into China. Chris talks through the impact of China on BHP, Australia’s largest mining stock. To wrap up Shepherd asks a question from the audience: A small percentage of the Chinese population actually invest in their stock market. Why then is it so volatile?

INDONESIA THE LARGEST ECONOMY IN SOUTHEAST ASIA - G20 MEMBER With a population of over 242.3 million, Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world and represents a sizable consumer market. In 2012, Indonesia had a gross domestic product (GDP) of $894.9 billion, making it the 16th largest economy in the world. (International Monetary Fund) The Indonesian government plays a significant role in Indonesia's market economy in which it owns over 160 enterprises and sets prices for several goods such as electricity, rice and fuel. Indonesia has the largest economy in Southeast Asia and is a member of both the G20 and APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation). According to the IMF, Indonesia is the third fastest growing economy in the G20 after India and China. The country's main economic industries include petroleum and natural gas, apparel, textiles, apparel, mining, tourism and rubber. Indonesia has endured the recent global financial crisis through its reliance on domestic consumption to drive continual economic growth. In addition, investment from both foreign and domestic sources has supported the Indonesian economy. Due to its recent economic growth and sound fiscal policies, Indonesia's debt to GDP ratio has steadily declined. Trade was been expanding swiftly between the United States and Indonesia in the last several years. Since 2005, U.S. exports to Indonesia have more than doubled from $3.1 million to $8 million in 2012. The main export categories are transportation equipment, agricultural products, chemicals, and machinery. Indonesia is actively involved with Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC). APEC was formed in 1989. It serves as a multilateral forum in which Asian and Pacific economies can solve economic problems and cooperate in developing key economic sectors. Collectively, the 21 economies of APEC, which touch the Pacific Ocean, represent a large consumer market— nearly half the world's population, nearly half of all world trade and more than $31 trillion in economic output. The APEC economies are: Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, People's Republic of China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Republic of the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Thailand, United States and Vietnam. Association of SouthEast Asian Nations (ASEAN) On October 7, 2003, 10 Southeast Asian nations signed an agreement to become an economic union by 2020. The agreement sets deadlines for lowering travel restrictions and tariffs in the region of 500 million people. Trade in this ASEAN Economic Community totals more than $720 billion a year. ASEAN includes Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, Laos, Vietnam, Brunei and Myanmar. Indonesia will host the 25th Annual APEC meetings in 2013

General Skilled Migration(GSM) - Australia
This is my ice breaker speech at ToastMasters, on General Skilled Migration(GSM). This is on what's in it for the Immigration Nation to invite around 200,000 migrants every year. The inter-generational report is discussed in here. This is an analysis on how GSM boosts the Australian Economy, GSM's contribution to Australia's GDP, GSM as a remedy to aging population problem in Australia, GSM, Net Overseas Migration (NOM) levels, Permanent Residents (PR) stats, Skilled Visa and Family Visa numbers. Transcript: Narration (Intro): Last 2 years, around 200 K people got PR in Australia. They made Australia colourful, they are still making it colourful, singing dancing and considering it as their second home. They had their reasons to come to Australia and Australia has its reasons too. I had a chance to speak in a local public speaking club on GSM - genera skilled migration and what’s in it for the immigration nation. Speech Transcript: We are one…. We are many and from all the lands on earth we come. We share a dream and sing with one voice… I am , You are , We are Australians. Fellow Toast masters and my dear guests, this is Sujith Billa and today I am going to talk about GSM- General Skilled Migration. General Skilled Migration definitely contributes to the GDP growth in Australia. This is not me saying it but but this is what the Australian Bureau of Statistics says. that . If you look at the numbers from 2014 - 15 from the department of Immigration and Border Protection, 190,000 migrants have come to Australia. Out of them 68% are skilled and 32% are family stream. Can I say that the family stream migrants doesn’t come, sit back and watch TV. They eventually join the workforce.So they too contribute to the GDP. Industry wise, if you have a look at that, The mining boom is going down. According to the intergenerational report, in 2050, we are looking at the manufacturing sector and we are looking at other sectors including the IT sector. These migrants contribute, eventually to different sectors as well. If we talk about different visa types, we have got the student visa, we have got the skilled independent visas, we have got the most talked about Visa, the 457 visa , which was an election issue, last elections. These visas contribute to the GDP as well. Starting from TimTams, migrations buy, ….the list goes on up to houses. They make residential investments and then boost the Australian Economy. The problem in Australia today is the ageing population. Again, according to the intergenerational report, there are 3 P’s. one of the P’s is population. This is endorsed by the Australian Parliament and Australian government in Canberra. the foreword is written by the Treasurer. they say that the ageing population in 2050 would be worse and if you compare the migration stats with the ageing population, the more number of migrations we have means the more number of people we have in the workforce. Narration(Conclusion:) We not boost the Australian economy but also provide entertainment as well. Look at this..SITA Garden. the mini India.event 1 in the white night Melbourne 2015. This is GSM- Global Skilled Migration.

Effects of coal boom on other sectors- Richard Denniss
The coal boom is very good news for the coal industry but really bad news for the manufacturing sector, tourism and agriculture. While it's been billed as the financial saviour of the nation, Dr Denniss reminds us that the "economy" is something that needs to work for over 22 million Australians and over a million businesses. So which bits of the economy is the coal boom good for? Eighty-three per cent of coal industry is foreign owned, so the profits from this boom are headed overseas. There are deals being done to ensure foreign workers get employed in mining in Western Australia and Queensland. Locally, workers that are flown in and flown out of mining towns get such big wages that local businesses, manufacturing industries, and community building services such as teaching, nursing and policing can't compete, and are struggling to find workers. Dr Denniss reminds us of the most basic principle in all good economies; don't put all your eggs in one basket "Last year 63 per cent of all investment went into the mining industry. But the mining industry only employs two per cent of our workforce. So we're putting our whole future faith in the fact that this mining boom is going to continue, so we've put all our eggs in one basket." "Booms end," says Denniss. "That's why it's risky to hollow out our manufacturing industry, hollow out our communities, and literally bet the country on the mining boom going forever. History tells us that booms are fun on the way up but no fun on the way down."

The House That Cocaine Built
Cocaine exports account for roughly 2.5% of Colombia's GDP. It is the equivalent of the mining industry's share of the American economy—Exports of the drug are down—but it's still an $8 billion a year business for Colombian traffickers. That's plenty of incentive to keep production going no matter how hard the government cracks down. Over the last decade, America has given billions to the Colombian military to fight the narco traffickers. In some ways it looks like the U.S. is getting bang for its bucks—Colombian authorities destroyed 2,356 labs in 2012, a serious dent in Colombia's cocaine industry. But producers and traffickers of the drug are finding ever more creative ways to keep this lucrative business thriving. It's like a never-ending game of whack-a-mole, just when authorities think they've got the cartels on the run, their methods evolve and adapt. As a British journalist living in the region, our reporter Toby Muse was curious about the current 'state of the art' for Colombia's processors, traffickers and dealers—what are the latest tricks to outsmarting the authorities? He made a few calls and obtained rare, and potentially dangerous access to a processing laboratory. It's not in the jungle as you might expect, but in an urban center of a Colombian city, which we agreed not to name. It turns out that the latest trend in Colombia's cocaine trade is to move processing out of the huge plants found in the jungle to small, mobile and disposable urban labs. In this new, decentralized world of cocaine production, two men with some buckets, a handful of microwave ovens and only the most basic knowledge of chemistry can take naturally growing coco leaves and turn them into 100% pure cocaine powder. And here's the craziest part...they show us how they do it.

Summary of gross domestic product for the September 2018 quarter
Stats NZ manager for quarterly GDP talks about gross domestic product for the September 2018 quarter. Transcript: The New Zealand economy grew by 0.3 percent in the September 2018 quarter, following growth of 1 percent in the previous quarter. Annual growth was 3.0 percent. The quarterly growth rate is the lowest since the last quarter of 2013, while annual growth is the lowest since mid-2014. Primary industries, which include agriculture, forestry, and mining, were up 2.2 percent. Goods-producing industries fell 1 percent, with manufacturing the main contributor. Construction activity also fell as repair work on roads damaged by the Kaikōura earthquake wound down. Growth in services industries was widespread but moderate at 0.5 percent. We also look at the economy in terms of money spent on goods and services. Household spending rose by 1.0 percent this quarter, driven by spending on services and durable goods. Investment spending fell 0.9 percent, with business investment down 2.1 percent. Investment spending remains at a high level, up 5.3 percent for the year. Taking population growth into account, GDP per capita was flat for the quarter, and up 1 percent for the year.
