The Pacific region attracts the highest number of Australian exporters.  This is due to the close geographic proximity of Australia to the Pacific and Australia’s wide supply chains provide a broad range of exports products to the region.  In terms of services Australia is a dominant market for tourists to the region.

 

While each Pacific Island is unique the main sectors that attract Australian companies are mining, technology and digital services, agribusiness, infrastructure (water, energy & roads), building and construction materials and education.
