In keeping with Australia’s continuing economic growth despite the otherwise global economic downturn, the Australian central bank was the first of the G20 nations central banks to raise interest levels (from 3% to 3.25%). In addition, the central bank has indicated that interest rates would continue to rise if economic growth continues at the present rate.
This rise in interest rates is great news for people planning to live, work or invest in Australia.

Australia has again been named the second best country in the world to live in! (Australia has maintained the same ranking for the second year running.)
According to the United Nations worldwide survey, the Human Development Report – which takes into consideration factors such as life expectancy, education and standard of living, Australian follows Norway as the best country to live.
This inevitably means that more people will be wanting to migrate to Australia to take advantage of all the benefits – sunshine, great education system, democratic system, great lifestyle – it has to offer.
