DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ABS AND AWBC WINE EXPORT FIGURES
The value of wine exports reported in this publication is derived by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) from customs export records and the ABS converts the value on the day of shipment, at the daily conversion rate (see paragraph 10 of the Explanatory Notes for more detail). The Australian Wine and Brandy Corporation (AWBC) also report the value of exports and the exporter makes the conversion when submitting wine for export approval. With the AWBC method, it is expected that some of the conversions will occur at hedged rates. This does not occur with the ABS method. For June, the value reported by the ABS was $251.3m, while the AWBC value was $275.0m. When the Australian exchange rate is moving significantly the alternative methods will result in diverging valuations.
