Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/29/2012 -- During 2008-2009, the global financial crisis led to many independent lenders withdrawing from the capital market due to difficulties with regards to raising funds. The Australian construction industry faced the specific challenge of increasing costs when obtaining debt financing. Consequently, the industry's growth rate declined in 2009 compared with 2008. However, the announcement of stimulus packages in the 2009-2010 budget had a positive impact on many areas of the economy. Notably, the schools building package provided support to the institutional construction market during a time when obtaining finance was problematic. The Australian government is anticipated to spend a significant sum on improving the education system over the next three-years under the Building Education Revolution (BER) scheme.
- Construction is the fourth-largest industry in Australia in terms of employment opportunities, providing work to 9.1% of the country's total workforce in October 2010.
- The Australian government adopted various measures to stimulate spending in its 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 budgets. The government is investing AUD36 billion on road and rail infrastructure through the Nation Building Program over a six-year period from 2008-2014.
