The Australian Financial Press reports that Nike is moving its operations out of the US and into the country.
The move is a sign of growing concern over US President Donald Trump’s policies towards the country’s biggest business.
The announcement came just two weeks after the US government imposed a travel ban on six countries from imposing trade sanctions.
Nike CEO Mark Parker said the move to Australian shores is designed to increase the company’s global presence and create opportunities for US companies to invest and innovate.
In his first public remarks since taking the helm at the company, Parker said: We are moving our operations to the Australian market because we believe that this is a place where we can be at the cutting edge and have an opportunity to create long-term value.
It was also a strategic move by the shoe company, with the new Nike Australia service costing less than the $10m it would have cost to run in the US.
What you need to know about: US Trump’s travel ban US President Trump signed an executive order barring travellers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US until January 20.
The order applies to people who hold visas to enter the US or have been granted entry in the past 90 days.
The White House says it was needed to protect Americans from terrorism, but critics say it’s a thinly veiled attempt to clamp down on dissent.
What’s more, the US president has previously said he’s concerned about the rise of so-called Islamic State.
The US travel ban has also caused confusion and upset in countries across the world.
What the experts are saying The move to a more open and less restrictive Australian trading environment will be welcomed by investors and governments across the globe.
It is a big win for Australian workers, who are often at the forefront of global innovation.
And it will allow Nike to expand in a much more globalised market.
US President-elect Donald Trump said the travel ban was needed ‘to protect Americans against terrorism’.
‘Nike will move its headquarters to Australia, a country where we have great companies and great employees,’ Mr Parker said in a statement on Monday.
The company says it will use the new service to ‘build and grow our global reach’ and ‘make the right investments’.
It will also offer a range of other services, including shoe repair and distribution, and will be able to offer ‘further services and services at a much higher level, and in greater depth’.
