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.

RioTinto's recruitment drive for 6000 new workers

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.

Welcome to Australia- Australia Travel Guide
Some facts about Australia https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDagSNXrEFs In land area, Australia is estimated to be 7,692,024 square Kilometers and the sixth largest nation after Russia, Canada, China, the United States of America and Brazil. It has, however, a relatively small population. Australia is the only nation to govern an entire continent and its outlying islands. The mainland is the largest island and the smallest, flattest continent on Earth. It lies between 10° and 39° South latitude. The highest point on the mainland, Mount Kosciuszko, is only 2,228 metres. Australia is the driest inhabited continent on earth. Its interior has one of the lowest rainfalls in the world and about three-quarters of the land is arid or semi-arid. Its fertile areas are well-watered, however, and these are used very effectively to help feed the world. Sheep and cattle graze in dry country, but care must be taken with the soil. Some grazing land became desert when the long cycles that influence rainfall in Australia turned to drought. The Australian federation consists of six States and two Territories. Most inland borders follow lines of longitude and latitude. The largest State, Western Australia, is about the same size as Western Europe. Economy Australia has a developed modern market economy and has had one of the most outstanding economies of the world in recent years with high-growth, low-inflation and low interest rates. Over the past decade, inflation has typically been 2–3% and the base interest rate 5–6%. There is an efficient government sector, a flexible labour market and a very competitive business sector. Since 1992 Australia has averaged greater than 3 per cent economic growth and recorded over 17 consecutive years. This economic stability places Australia in the top echelon of developed countries in terms of sustained rates of growth. The Australian economy is dominated by its service sector, representing 68% of Australian GDP. The agricultural and mining sectors account for 57% of the nation’s exports. With its abundant physical resources, Australia has enjoyed a high standard of living since the nineteenth century. Australia is a major exporter of agricultural products, particularly wheat and wool, minerals such as iron-ore and gold, and energy in the forms of liquified natural gas and coal. It has made a comparatively large investment in social infrastructure, including education, training, health and transport. According to the Reserve Bank of Australia, Australian per capita GDP growth is higher than that of New Zealand, US, Canada and The Netherlands. The past performance of the Australian economy has been heavily influenced by US, Japanese and Chinese economic growth. Immigration Australia’s culturally diverse society includes its Indigenous peoples who arrived more than 50,000 years ago, and settlers from countries all around the world. Immigration is an important feature of Australian society. Since 1945, over six million people from 200 countries have come to Australia as new settlers. Migrants have made a major contribution to shaping modern Australia. People born overseas make up almost one quarter of the total population. The federal government sets immigration intake numbers on a yearly basis. Australia’s immigration policies are non-discriminatory and all applicants to migrate must meet the same selection criteria. In recent years the mandatory detention of unauthorised arrivals with the intention of applying for refugee status (asylum seekers) by boat has generated great levels of controversy. Mandatory detention laws were introduced in Australia by the Keating Labor government, with bipartisan support, in 1992. The legislation was proposed as a result of an influx of Vietnamese, Chinese, and Cambodian refugees over the previous few years.

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 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.

Australia's economy accelerates in Q4
The pace of economic growth in Australia topped the analysts' expectations in the fourth quarter. According to the RBA consumers spent more and saved less for the last three months of the last year. Thus, the growth of consumer spending supported domestic market. Compared with the third quarter, Australia's GDP advanced 0.8%, while it gained 2.8% on year. The experts anticipated the indicator to add 2.5%. The Australian economy shows a more sustainable recovery. From October to December the quarrying sector, rental, hiring, and real estate services contributed equally to the GDP growth. Exports volumes and capital investment of the public sector increased, whereas private investments decreased. The Australian dollar rose on the news 40 points against its U.S. peer to 89.97 U.S. cents. However, the Aussie failed to retain its positions and retreated to the level of 89.55 cents. The local unit added 0.11% since the beginning of the day. Notwithstanding better GDP figures, the pace of economic growth remains below the potential level of 3%. The reason behind it is the slowdown in country's mining due to fewer investments. Nevertheless, the RBA expects stronger GDP growth this year and further weakening of the Australian dollar.

AUD falls as RBA stands pat on monetary policy
Yesterday, traders resumed long positions on the US dollar. The greenback aroused bulls’ interest in light of the upbeat report on the US manufacturing sector survey. Amid the increasing demand for the US dollar, commodity currencies were showing strong resilience supported by the bullish sentiment in commodity markets. So, the Australian dollar nearly approached the resistance level at 0.7690, though it failed to break it out and strengthen the bullish trend. Demand for the aussie fell sharply after the Reserve Bank of Australia announced its monetary policy decisions. At the monthly meeting, Australia’s central bank decided to leave the cash rate unchanged at a record low of 1.50% as widely expected. The market was alert to the statement following the October monetary policy meeting as it was the first meeting chaired by Phillipe Lowe, the new governor. The statement revealed more positive message than previously. The board noted good adaptability of Australia’s economy to changing conditions. Steady GDP growth was not hampered by a long slump in mining investment as the mining industry is the key economic sector. Australia's biggest-ever boom in apartment-building has helped support economic activity. Building permits surged 10.1% in August in annual terms, the strongest print for the recent 10 months. Nevertheless, obvious risks to the economic stability remain the same, in particular low inflation and the overvalued national currency. https://www.instaforex.com

G20 YEA Welcome to Australia
Global structural unemployment is a crisis that disproportionately impacts youth. Youth unemployment in the US and Canada is equivalent to 0.6% of GDP, and over the next 18 years as a result of scarring (lost future earnings due to current unemployment) lost GDP will be 1.3%[1]. In 2014, B20 Australia has presented that the economic opportunity in Europe's unemployed youth is a potential value of €153 billion per annum, or 1.2% of European GDP[2]. The promotion of youth employment and entrepreneurship is a significant factor in increasing medium to long term trend growth, productivity, reducing social risks and improving the return on investment in education by reducing skills mismatch. The G20 Young Entrepreneurs Alliance (G20 YEA) is a collective of leading entrepreneurship NGOs representing over 500,000 entrepreneurs across G20 countries and the European Union. The YEA members have already created an estimated 10 million jobs. G20 YEA is building on partnerships and collaboration with governmental, business and civil society stakeholders such as the OECD, ILO and UN Millennium Campaign, B20, Y20, EY, Accenture and all official G20 engagement groups. In 2014 over 400 young entrepreneurs and leaders from all G20 countries and 14 observer nations, selected to represent the voice of the world's future business leaders, attended the G20 YEA Summit in Sydney from 18th July. The 2014 G20 YEA Summit built upon the dialogue between young entrepreneurs that began in Italy (at the G8), and continued at the G20 YEA Summits in Canada, France, Mexico and Russia, resulting in the G20's recognition of the need for a special focus on youth entrepreneurship in the B20 communiqué and the 2013 G20 leaders declaration. The Australian G20 YEA Summit aims to ensure that the ideas of young entrepreneurs adopted by G20 leaders in 2013 will not remain merely a statement, and that the world will witness concrete actions taken towards their institutionalisation. Investment in small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and young entrepreneurs is essential for the G20 countries to achieve the additional 2% increase in global GDP agreed in the Finance Minister's declaration of February 2014, under Australia's 2014 G20 chair.

Focus on The Australian Trade Balance
This week we will focus on Australian Trade Balance. This meeting or release is scheduled the first week of each month. The economy of Australia is one of the largest capitalist economies in the world with a GDP of US$1.5 trillion as of 2013. Australia's total wealth is 6.4 trillion dollars. In 2012, it was the 12th largest national economy by nominal GDP and the 17th-largest measured by PPP-adjusted GDP, about 1.7% of the world economy. Australia is the 19th-largest importer and 19th-largest exporter. The Reserve Bank of Australia publishes forecasts of the economy quarterly. By Barry Norman, Investors Trading Academy.
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?

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.

Australia Unemployment Rate Drops To 6.0 Percent
For More Latest News Subscribe us: SYDNEY: Australia's unemployment rate unexpectedly fell to 6.0 percent in May, data showed today, in a sign the economy could be starting to better adapt to the end of a mining investment boom. Some 42,000 positions were added in the month, much higher than the 10,000 predicted by analysts, as the jobless rate ticked down from an adjusted 6.1 per cent in April. The increase in employment was driven by part-time jobs, which rose 27,300 while full-time roles were up 14,700, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said. The May figures were better than expected, with the consensus of economists that the unemployment rate would remain steady. The Australian dollar jumped three quarters of a US cent on the news to 77.93 US cents. "The 42,000 gain in Australian employment in May will no doubt add to claims that Australia's economy has weathered the end of the mining boom well," said Capital Economics senior Asia economist Daniel Martin.

The Australian Economy
The Australian Economy - the transition from the mining and construction boom - what will fill that void next? What is the impact of the Aussie Dollar? What is the RBA thinking?
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.

Unlocking the Potential of Northern Australia–Dr Peter Stone–CSIRO
Dr Peter Stone of CSIRO on Unlocking the potential of Northern Australia at 2016 IWA World Water Congress and Exhibition, Brisbane, Australia. Dr. Peter Stone (http://people.csiro.au/S/P/Peter-Stone) is a Research Program Director at CSIRO, and leads CSIRO’s work on the development of Northern Australia. His presentation describes the work that CSIRO is currently undertaking to support increased development, particularly in the area of irrigated agriculture, in Northern Australia. Northern Australia covers an extensive land area, equivalent to approximately five times the size of France. 1.3 million people live in this area, and the GDP per capita is the highest in the world, thanks to the thriving mining and cattle industries. In Northern Australia, CSIRO has identified 16 million hectares of suitable irrigable soil, and there is enough water (after evaporation, which accounts for 90% of water loss following rainfall) to irrigate 1.5 million hectares. CSIRO has identified both where and how to irrigate following the identification of key drivers and impediments. CSIRO is now working to address the following key issues in order to develop a plan to fully realise the benefits for Northern Australia: land tenure, water resource plans, farm systems, profitability, and supply chains. CSIRO’s approach looks at the interlocking biophysical, regulatory, social, and financial considerations in order to reduce risks and improve opportunities for irrigated agriculture throughout Northern Australia.
Australia's economy grows faster than expected
Australia's economy grew at a better-than-expected 0.9% in the first quarter of 2015, compared to the previous quarter, boosted by mining together with financial and insurance services. Forecasts were for quarterly growth of between 0.5% and 0.7%. Official statistics also showed that household consumption expenditure boosted the quarterly growth numbers. But economist Shane Oliver told the BBC the numbers were "well below potential". On an annual basis the economy expanded 2.3%, beating expectations for 2.1%. Economic growth in the March quarter of 2014 was 2.9%. 'Not out of the woods' "The March quarter GDP [gross domestic product] growth was far better than feared just a few days ago," said Mr Oliver, who is chief economist with AMP Capital in Sydney. "However, Australia is still not out of the woods, as annual growth at 2.3% is well below potential, and a full 0.8% percentage points of the 0.9% growth came from higher inventories and trade." He said domestic demand remained "very weak with consumer spending and home construction only just offsetting the ongoing slump in mining investment". "So the Australian economy has not crashed - as many had feared would happen after the end of the mining boom - but it is continuing to grow at a sub par pace," he added. Australia's economy has been adjusting to a post mining-boom landscape. It saw its economy grow 0.5% in the October to December 2014 period from the quarter before, when growth was 0.4%. On Tuesday, the country's central bank, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), did not cut its lending rates further to help boost the economy, despite pressure from businesses to do so. The decision saw Australian stocks fall 1.72% as investors saw little hope of a further cut in the near future. However, Evan Lucas from IG Markets in Melbourne said "the collapse of [Australian stocks] on the back of the RBA not having an explicit easing bias... was a bit of an overreaction". In May, the RBA cut its benchmark lending rate by 25 basis points to an all-time low of 2%.Rising property prices in Australia's biggest city, Sydney, a strong currency and a drop in iron ore prices were among the reasons for the cut. The May rate cut was the second this year, following a previous 25 basis point cut in February and followed similar action from central banks in China, Canada, Singapore, Korea and India. A rising Australian dollar had also been cause for concern, particularly for Australia's big mining and energy exporters. Mr Oliver said more help would likely to be required "in the form of an even lower Australian dollar - and to ensure this happens the RBA may yet still have to cut interest rates further into record low territory."

February 2015 Economic Update with George Tharenou
Australia could experience an increase in domestic spending and consumption due to a dipping dollar and sub-trend economy. The residual benefits of the mining capital expenditure boom and consistently low interest rates have also contributed to this inward economic focus. A “sting in the tail” regarding Asia’s strong economic growth may well be the issue of having to contend with substantial debt levels as per its Western counterparts. While China’s economic slowdown is evident, it is by no means dire. Meanwhile, India is set to ride a wave of economic strength. US markets are in a holding pattern as they wait to see whether the Fed will raise interest rates. On the whole, there are positive signs for growing consumption and employment in the US. While Europe’s economy contends with legacy issues of fiscal tightening and austerity measures, there are signs of improvement and a potential easing of monetary policy In this Q & A interview, UBS’ senior economist George Tharenou discusses his overall expectations for Australia’s economy, the pros and cons of Asia’s economic growth, and the key influences on the US economic environment and Europe’s economic recovery.

South Africa’s GDP growth hits record low of 0.3%, last seen in 2009 recession
South Africa’s economy grew just 0.3% in 2016 compared with 1.3% in 2015. It's the lowest growth recorded since 2009's recession. The statistics body says a slowdown in mining and manufacturing led the decline. Agriculture also negatively impacted growth, but that was largely expected, as result of the drought. Sumitra Nydoo has the details.

08.12.2015 - Economic Calendar by Dukascopy
Tuesday brings the latest update on Euro Zone economic growth, so let's take a closer look with the Economic Calendar. I'm Sinead MacLaughlin Coming up first at 9:30 AM is the UK Industrial Production for October. The Index slipped in September as a strong drop in mining reversed higher manufacturing output. The highly anticipated second estimate of Euro Zone Third Quarter GDP follows at 10. The preliminary estimate puts the quarterly growth at point 3%, which is lower than point 4% gain the previous quarter. Canadian Building Permits for October are out at 1:30 PM GMT. The number of permits has been declining for the past two months, pushed lower by a strong drop in Ontario. UK NIESR Monthly GDP Estimate for November will be available at 3. The previous estimate covered the three months ending in October and noted a slightly stronger growth than the point 5 percent increase a quarter ago. Loonie Dollars may want to pay close attention to Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz Speech, which is due at 5:50. He will be speaking at the Empire Club of Canada in Toronto, and a press conference follows 55 minutes later. Australian Westpac Consumer Confidence for December follows at 11:30. The Index saw a strong growth in November, rising to a 6-month high. Coming up next at 11:50 are the Japanese Machinery Orders for October. Orders saw a strong growth in September as growth was recorded both at home and overseas. Australian Home Loans for October are scheduled at half past midnight. Home loans posted their second consecutive monthly growth in September. And last up at 6 AM are the Japanese Preliminary Machine Tool Orders for November. The number of orders continued to decline in Octover, and at a faster rate than the 19.1% decline a month ago. That concludes the Economic Calendar for Tuesday, the 8th of December.
