NOTE: Chapter 7 has been re-released on 06 July 2007 due to an adjustment of the values for cultural and recreational services and the corresponding totals and percentages in Table 7.1 'Trade in Cultural Goods and Services - 2005-06'.

TRADE IN CULTURAL GOODS AND SERVICES


Australia continues to import more cultural goods and services than it exports overseas. In 2005-06, Australia earned $965m through the provision of cultural goods and cultural and recreational services to the rest of the world, around a quarter of the value of cultural goods and services it received from overseas ($5,048m).
