Contents >> Trade >> Tasmania's trade performance >> Excess of exports over imports

Tasmania's recorded exports exceed imports in value. Tasmania's rich mineral resources and an environment capable of producing far more primary produce than its small domestic population requires is one reason. Another is the understating of import figures, with only direct imports into Tasmania being recorded.
