The value of interstate imports for Queensland in the December 2007 quarter was $6,729.5 million, a -3.9% decrease on the previous quarter and 12% higher than the same quarter in 2006.

The value in the December 2007 quarter of interstate exports was $2,577.3 million, a 1.4% increase on the previous quarter and -3.1% lower than the same quarter 12 months earlier.

The value of imports continues to be between two and three times the value of exports.

NOTE: In compiling the estimates of Interstate Trade for the Office of Economic and Statistical Research, the ABS uses a partial coverage census based on businesses with more than $400,000 of interstate trade. This collection is now under review due to frame and coverage issues. New businesses are not well represented, so the estimates are likely to be understated. The estimates are prepared for use in the compilation of Treasury's State Accounts and users should exercise strong caution in their independent use.

For further information on this topic, please contact Queensland Treasury, Office of Economic and Statistical Research. Interstate trade data are released quarterly.
