Appendix 1

Selected impacts on exports on a recorded trade basis at the 3-digit level of SITC

Office machines and related codes

At the three-digit level the largest impact in dollar terms is in SITC group 751 'Office machines', with an increase of $153m (202%) in 2005-06 and $138m (227%) in 2006-07. This movement can be mostly attributed to movements from SITC groups 745, 752, 759 and 764 which include commodities such as inkjet printers, fax machines, office machines that perform two or more functions, copy machines and teleprinters. Details are shown in Table A1.1.
