Australia is a highly-developed economy and a melting pot of different cultures and backgrounds. It is the 14th largest economy in the world by nominal GDP and due to high levels of migration, strong relations with major trading partner China, and good macroeconomic policy, Australia has experienced steady economic growth.

Australia has a population of approximately 25.6 million people with almost 30% of the population being born overseas with increasing numbers of migrants from China and India over the past two decades (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2020).

Data Zoo’s array of Australian and international data sources accompanied by our industry experience and expertise can assist with your unique business verification requirements.
