dc.description.abstract The contribution of female immigrant entrepreneurs is not acknowledged in debates about the economic impact of Australian immigration. Often, the controversial immigration debate evolves around questions such as: What contributions do immigrants make? Do immigrants take jobs from non-immigrants? Do immigrants create jobs? Do immigrants have higher unemployment rates than non-immigrants? Unfortunately, such debates attract anti-immigration views such as: immigrants are highly welfare-dependent and are welfare cheats; immigrants avoid paying taxes; immigrants employ their own kind; immigrants operate in the black economy; immigrants commit crimes; and many other negative expressions that add to the paranoia against immigrants and immigration policies. This paper engages in the immigration debate by examining the economic contributions of a group of Asian-born women entrepreneurs in Sydney. This empirical study shows that they make significant economic contributions to the creation of new businesses and jobs in addition to other non-quantifiable economic benefits to Australia.
