Australia has a warm and significant bilateral relationship with Germany. We have wide-ranging dialogue and cooperation with Germany, which ranks among Australia's leading trading partners. We have a strong and expanding investment relationship. Germany is a major source of foreign direct investment in Australia and one of Australia's largest investment destinations.

Germany has been a significant source of migrants to Australia. Germans and Australians have wide-ranging interest in each other's culture. Australia is one of the most popular overseas destinations for German tourists and students. The Government is keen to expand existing links with Germany, including in traditional and new commercial spheres.
