 Australia has transformed itself into an internationally competitive, advanced market economy thanks to abundant and diverse natural resources which attract high levels of foreign investment and include extensive reserves of coal, iron ore, copper, gold, natural gas, uranium, and renewable energy sources. Besides being the world’s largest net exporter of coal accounting for 29% of global coal exports, the country is also a significant exporter of food and has a large services sector. The Australian economy grew by 2.4% in 2017.
