Who owns Australia?11 July 2020 by News Desk

The Register of Foreign Ownership of Agricultural Land was prepared by the Turnbull government in 2016 in response to growing concerns about Chinese investment in Australia’s agriculture sector.
The six colonies federated in 1901 and the Commonwealth of Australia was formed as a Dominion of the British Empire.
The United Kingdom remains the second largest overall foreign investor in Australia.
In turn, Australia is the seventh largest foreign direct investor in Britain.
