CHANGES IN FORTHCOMING ISSUES


The May 2010 issue of International Trade in Goods and Services, Australia (cat. no. 5368.0) and the June quarter 2010 issue of Balance of Payments and International Investment Position, Australia (cat. no. 5302.0) will introduce changes to several goods debits components. A new component 'Civil aircraft and confidentialised items' will be introduced. It will include Civil aircraft for all periods, and from July 2008, will include all commodities subject to a 'no commodity details' or 'no value details' restriction. This change will affect the statistics presented in the Capital goods n.e.s. component from December 2008 and the Other merchandise goods component for July and August 2008, but will not revise the total value of goods debits for these periods.

The civil aircraft item has been confidentialised since December 2008, and therefore the components making up the 'Civil aircraft and confidentialised items' series will not be available at a lower level on a balance of payments basis.

This will not change the presentation of the Civil aircraft series in merchandise trade series.
