China was by far the leading contributor to growth in Western Australia's trade surplus through the year to March quarter 2007. The state's trade surplus with China rose 52.0% ($1,002 million) to $2,931 million, while other major contributors with large trade surpluses were India (up $405 million), Switzerland (up $349 million) and the Republic of Korea (up $316 million). Notably, Western Australia's trade surplus with Switzerland rose from $28 million to $377 million between the March quarters of 2006 and 2007, mainly due to a large increase in gold exported to that country. Partially offsetting these increases was a large fall in the state's trade surplus with the United Kingdom (down $245 million), and worsening trade deficits with Singapore (up $106 million) and Indonesia (up $100 million).
