Victoria’s relationship with South East Asia

Victoria has a strong relationship with South East Asia which includes a history of mutual business participation. The Victorian Government maintains a strong presence in South East Asia, with a Victorian Government Business Office located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and one recently set up in Jakarta, Indonesia.

These offices have the dual aim of both developing and maintaining relationships with potential and current South East Asian investors and facilitating Victorian exports into South East Asia. The Victorian Government also has a tourism office based in Singapore.

A Free Trade Agreement was signed between the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Australia and New Zealand in 2009, and the Free Trade Agreement with Malaysia (MAFTA) came into force in 2013. Further, Victoria and Singapore have signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreements on Design and Culture.

Victoria continues to enjoy a strong relationship with South East Asian countries, including Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam. The close proximity of Victoria to these nations makes for an ideal partnership on trade and investment, whilst cultural ties continue to strengthen.

Victoria’s major investors from South East Asia

There are several prominent South East Asian companies currently operating in Victoria across a wide range of industries.

Examples include Information and Communication Technology (ICT) companies Singtel and food and beverage companies, Safcol and QAF Limited. Olam, a Singaporean company, has recently invested in agribusiness in Victoria. Within the tourism and hospitality industry, Tune Hotels recently opened its first hotel in Australia in Melbourne.

Victoria's airline services industry has also seen recent investment from both Air Asia X , Tiger Airways and Garuda Airlines.
