Over 300,000 Malaysians graduated with an Australian degree in the past 10 years and the numbers are increasing year on year. It is no surprise that the Australian High Commissioner to Malaysia Andrew Goledzinowski declared that “Australia is open for business, and we look forward to having Malaysians visit us. Continue to send your kids to Australian schools, continue to invest in Australian properties, and continue to trade with Australia”.
He announced that Malaysia is a designated “focus country” for the “Invest in Australia NOW” programme. The programme was launched as part of the 65th anniversary celebration of Australia’s diplomatic presence in Malaysia recently at the Annual Australia Day 2020 event hosted by the Australian High Commission in Malaysia. The celebration was attended by many diplomats and ministers, along with prominent Malaysian property developers with a presence in Australia.
Indeed, there has been an increase in the number of Malaysians studying in Australia as reported in statistics published at https://www.ema.org.au/malaysian-students-in-australia – a website jointly owned by the Malaysian Education Ministry (JPM), Higher Education Department (JPT) and Education Malaysia Australia (EMA):
The statistics above continues to show that Melbourne, Victoria is the number 1 destination for Malaysians sending their children to study in Australia followed by Sydney, New South Wales.
With the influx of foreign quality students, Australian university hubs are natually located in some of the country’s most conducive cities. Based on QS Quacquarelli Symonds, in 2018, two major cities in Australia made it to the Top 10 destinations for students worldwide with Melbourne ranked third place and Sydney in ninth standing.
These facts are further supported by a recent PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) Report in Dec 2019 showing that the top three most investable cities in the Asia Pacific (APAC) market for 2019/2020 included Melbourne and Sydney as compared to other top 20 cities in Asia Pacific:
