Doing Business in Australia

[ 0 ] Apr. 9, 2012 | SBO Editor

Planning on doing business in Australia? Consider the following snapshot:

The Commonwealth of Australia has 22 million people with a median age of 37.7. The GDP per capita is $41,300. The legal voting and drinking age is 18. Australians often make jokes that their national religion is sports. If you are working on any promotion in Australia consider incorporating sports and sports figures. Promptness in business is key. Australians like their space in social situations so don’t crowd an Aussie. Stand about 3 feet apart. Handshakes are common as is direct eye contact during the handshake.  The typical work week is 36.6 hours and business cards are not always exchanged.
