The Australian government welcomed the start of Globex operations in Australia. Ross Cameron, parliamentary secretary to the Treasurer, said the CME’s entry could increase competition for derivatives, encouraging the growth of the Australian financial system.

The CME said its eurodollar contracts, futures and options on futures on the Australian dollar would prove most useful for the Australian financial markets.
