Denmark's consulate in Sydney announced today that advisors at the export council Eksportrådet are ready to assist Danish companies interested in stepping into the Australian market.

Australia's building market is not expected to slow down any time soon, as Reserve Bank governor Glenn Stevens in March predicted a boom in the Australian housing sector.

“We are going to have a boom in residential construction over the next couple of years. That is very much on track,” he told a Hong Kong conference.

Private and public mecca
Big cities like Sydney, Brisbane and Perth are experiencing expansion in both residential construction and in the business sector. Major public investments may also create building opportunities in city planning, infrastructure, health and education.

The export council also mentioned investment opportunities in large commercial building projects like modernisation of 'Elizabeth Quay' on the shore of Swan River in Perth and the city planning project 'Barangaroo' at Sydney Harbour.
