As advertised in the previous issue of this publication, the ABS has reviewed its publication strategy for international merchandise trade data and it had been decided to discontinue this publication. The Mar 2003 issue is the final issue.
The monthly publication International Trade in Goods and Services, Australia (cat. no. 5368.0) has been expanded to include some of the main tables that are contained in 5422.0, such as exports and imports by commodity (similar to table 11 in 5422.0). The April issue of 5368.0 will be released in the new format.
All of the data in this discontinued publication (5422.0) are available monthly on AusStats.
