Contents >> Trade >> Tasmania's trade performance >> Excess of exports over imports

Tasmania's recorded exports exceed imports in value. One reason for this is Tasmania's rich mineral resources and an environment capable of producing far more primary produce than its small domestic population requires. Another is the understating of import figures, with only direct imports into Tasmania being recorded.

In 2005-06 Tasmania's recorded exports exceeded imports by $2,352.6 million. This was an increase on $2,038.7m in 2004-05.
