TRADE IN CULTURAL GOODS

Australia continues to import more cultural goods and services than it exports overseas. In 2002-03, Australia earned $918m through the provision of cultural goods and cultural and recreational services to the rest of the world, less than a quarter of the value of goods and services it received from overseas ($4,328m).
