Contents >> Cultural Trade >> Introduction


Australian culture has evolved over many years and continues to be influenced by the diverse backgrounds of people who have migrated to Australia.

Overseas trade in goods and services also has an undeniable impact on Australian culture that extends well beyond its economic significance, as the imports of items such as films, music and books influence the way Australians think and act.

The range of cultural goods and services included in the following tables is based on the culture and recreation product classification of the Australian Culture and Leisure Classifications (ACLC).

More detailed information about the ACLC and what items have been included is available in the CMC SWG publication Australia's Trade in Culture 2000-01, Appendix 1 (see the List of references for this publication for more detail).
