Commuting between Sydney and Shanghai

Tue 7 May 2013

The Globalisation and Cities Research Program has released the latest mini-report as part of its research into migration in the global Sydney region.

"Commuting Between Sydney and Shanghai" looks at the substantial increase in airline passenger movements between two of the Asia-Pacific's major business hubs. It explores trends in passenger movements by gender, reason for travel, and age, to assess the changing face of people movement between global cities.

This research helps to show the growing importance for Australia to have links to both major global cities and the Chinese economy, particularly as Australia seeks to position itself to best take advantage of the Asian Century.

"Commuting Between Sydney and Shanghai" is part of ongoing research supported by the Commonwealth Department of Immigration and Citizenship and the Institute for Governance at the University of Canberra. This research has particular implications for Sydney and other major Australian cities in areas such as economic competitiveness, urban planning, infrastructure provision and government policies.
