At the ILO's Work4Youth 'Labour Market Transitions of Y...

The services sector will play a central role in ensuring Australia maximises the opportunities of this century's 'Asia Opportunity'. An immense prize awaits Australia with the growth that is occurring on our doorstep. By 2030, services could become Australia's number one export to Asia in terms of total value added, and in the process support one million Australian jobs. Australia can act now to take advantage of this opportunity, but it will not happen automatically. Australia will need to put in place a number of strategies to successfully position itself as a key services provider to Asia, and reap the benefits – jobs and economic growth – of the region's rapid economic development.
