Table 30.30 shows Australia's merchandise trade statistics classified according to the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC). The statistics are compiled by allocating international trade data for a commodity to an ANZSIC industry of origin category, based upon the industry which predominantly produces that commodity in Australia as defined by the ANZSIC.

The majority of exports were classified to Manufacturing, $68,973m (58% of total exports) and Mining, $31,942m (27% of total exports).

Exports increased in most ANZSIC subdivisions during 2000-01. The largest increases were in Oil and gas extraction, up $3,635m (49%) to $11,114m; Food, beverage and tobacco manufacturing, up $3,209m (24%) to $16,539m; Metal product manufacturing, up $2,736m (15%) to $21,027m; and Coal mining, up $2,502m (30%) to $10,829m.

The majority of imports were classified to Manufacturing, $108,324m (92% of total imports).

Imports showed large increases during 2000-01 in Petroleum, coal, chemical and associated product manufacturing, up $2,485m (15%) to $19,291m; Machinery and equipment manufacturing, up $2,453m (4%) to $58,675m; and Oil and gas extraction, up $2,337m (39%) to $8,369m.
