Coming from the North: Why Australia needs to embrace our Chinese visitors

Our latest blog- Coming from the North, why Australia needs to embrace our Chinese visitors

Both Chinese tourists and newly arrived Chinese residents offer many opportunities for the Australian banking and financial service sector. Also, a potentially lucrative market lies in assisting prospective Chinese migrants wishing to take up residence in Australia. In November 2012 applicants seeking Australian permanent residency who have Aus $5 million qualified for the Significant Investor Visa’scheme ( Rogers 2012). The ‘Significant Investor Visa’ requires applicants to invest their A$5 million dollars in Australian ventures. Recently released data shows that China’s growing wealthy are a prime target for these visas and any products that help secure them. According to the Wall Street Journal (2014), in 2013 China had reached over 2,000,000 millionaire households, second only to the U.S, and an 82% increase on the previous year.

Increasingly I hear Australian’s talk of travelling to Asia for low cost dental and other medical treatments. However, I rarely hear the reverse discussed. David Thomas, a leading expert on trade between Australia and China stated that in excess of 10,000 Asian people come to Australia to take advantage of our quality healthcare services. This import is currently worth over A$26 million (Thomas 2014). According to Deloitte, although Australia is unlikely to ever compete on prices with medical tourism offered in Asia, there is nothing to stop it targeting the high end niche healthcare market. Once again visitors from China offer huge potential with 8% of Chinese surveyed by Deloitte’s claiming they are travelling overseas for medical reasons and a significant number expressing that they have little confidence in the healthcare services they receive in China (Deloitte 2011 p. 4)
