Formatted abstract This thesis reviews the effects of direct foreign investment in Australia on the services industry. The services industry has a critical role to play in the Australian economy. As both the primary, secondary and industries are heavily reliant on the services sector for their production processes. Direct foreign investment beside increased output, income and employment also transfers advanced technology and innovations into the Australia economy. One finding of this study revealed that education and training plays a critical role in maintaining the skill levels of the services industry as a result of advanced technology. This can change the structure of the Australian economy from traditional primary exporters to a highly valued added services exporter. This implied active participation by the government in a supportive role to increases public expenditure into areas of education and training to ensure the future growth of the Australia economy.
