Australia is a Clever, Innovative and Productive Country

Have you ever thought about how clever Australians are and what inventions we have created which have benefited the world?

AUSBUY makes the claim we are clever, innovative and productive based on clear evidence. Given the size of our population, our relatively short history and our isolation, Australian ingenuity has been evident from the early days of settlement in the nineteenth century. Many of these innovations were developed when Australia had less than two million people and still they changed the world.  Many have involved engineering and science – skills which have helped advance the world we have today.

We also must consider that although they were initiated and developed by Australians many are no longer owned by Australians. We are confident Australians will continue to change the world.
