We had a request to look at the Global 5000 companies in Italy and Australia and are sharing that here.

There are 42 G5000 companies in Australia and 28 in Italy.
Interesting in that Italy has more than twice the population of Australia (approx 58 million vs 21) and twice the GDP as well

The G500 companies in Italy tend to be larger than Australia with an average of $28 billion vs $10 billion.

Makes for an interesting contrast and analysis for companies looking to size these markets or sell into them  Are you selling a consumer oriented product or a corporate B2B.  You may have more opportunity in one or the other depending on your focus.
