New report on the value of international education to Australia

The Australian Government commissioned a report, The value of international education to Australia, to raise awareness of the importance of international education to Australia.
 
Prepared by Deloitte Access Economics, the report was released on Friday 29 April 2016 and has identified nearly $1 billion in additional benefits that international education delivers to the Australian economy, beyond the $19 billion in export income already reported by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
 
The report indicates that international education supports over 130,000 jobs across the Australian economy and it delivers substantial indirect benefits to other industries such as tourism and retail.
