JUNE QUARTER

Summary Comments

Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing

  • The trend estimate rose by 0.7% while the seasonally adjusted estimate fell by 7.0% Following four quarters of strong growth due to the rebound in agricultural production from the 2002-03 drought, the fall in June quarter seasonally adjusted estimate is mainly due to lower production of rice and cotton.

Manufacturing
  • Rose by 0.7% in trend terms but was flat in seasonally adjusted terms. Sales fell 0.6% in seasonally adjusted terms while inventories of work-in-progress and finished goods rose. The main contributors to growth were printing and publishing, up 3.5%, machinery and equipment, up 1.9%, and food, beverage and tobacco production, up 1.4%.

Construction
  • Increased by 0.5% in trend terms but fell 0.1% in seasonally adjusted terms. Growth in the residential and non-residential building segments was offset by a fall in engineering construction activity.

Property and business services
  • This industry rose 0.7% in trend terms and 0.2% in seasonally adjusted terms.

Wholesale and Retail Trade
  • Wholesale trade rose by 1.3% in trend terms but fell 2.2% in seasonally adjusted terms, while retail trade rose in trend terms (up 1.2%) and in seasonally adjusted terms (up 1.5%). For the retail industry, a seasonally adjusted increase of 1.8% in the ABS measure of retail turnover was dampened by a 5.1% fall in purchases of motor vehicles.
