    Budget Surplus & Visa fees

    Not sure who it will effect but a couple of issues in addition to the main one cutting the amount of the baby bonuses elate to migrants LAFHA and visa costs http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/cuts-to-baby-bonus-to-get-back-to-surplus/story-e6frea6u-1226208977130 Says it is only some visa categories.
  2. According to figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Australia's trade surplus surged in August as exports of coal and other minerals increased despite concerns of a global slowdown. Shipments from Australia grew 8% from the previous month, while imports rose 3%, the ABS said. That resulted in a trade surplus of 3.1bn Australian dollars ($2.9bn; £1.9bn), the second-largest on record. The data comes amid concerns that fears of a slowdown may hurt demand for Australia's mineral exports. "Export volumes are really kicking along and that will be a big fillip for the economy in the quarter," said Brian Redican of Macquarie. Analysts said the fact that a huge amount of Australia's mineral shipments head to Asian economies has been a big factor in ensuring that its export sector sustains its momentum, despite global slowdown concerns. They said that as economies like India and China see more people move from rural to urban centres, the demand for minerals will continue to rise. "Both these countries have more than 1 billion people, and that is a big factor", said David Lennox of Fat Prophets As these countries undergo rapid urbanisation, they will also need to boost their power generation capacity in order to meet the increased demand for electricity. "That process is not dependent on what happens in the US or European economies," Mr Lennox said. He added that given these factors, exports of Australian minerals to the region will continue to grow.

    Surplus Furniture

    Hi Im looking for some advice about what to do with surplus furniture in our container! We have been in Perth for just over 4 weeks and have moved into a lovely place in South Fremantle, our furniture has finally arrived and will be delivered to us next week but my dilemma is that we packed more furniture than we now need. We basically have a large L shape sofa arrangement and a TV stand with no where to put it, we love the house we are in and hope to stay here for a while yet so there seems no point in storing it in the garage and we would like to off load it. Has anyone who has been in a similar situation got any advice about how they did this? Much appreciated... Jessie
