CHANGES TO INFORMATION PAPER
The Information paper: Changes to international trade in goods industry statistics, July 2009 (cat. no. 5368.0.55.011) released on 18 December 2008 described changes to industry statistics being implemented in the July 2009 issue of this publication. Available with the information paper were correspondences between the relevant industry and commodity classifications. Since the release of the information paper one change has been made to the correspondences in Tables 1 and 2 and one industry code has been removed from Table 5. The updated tables are available from the Downloads tab of the information paper.
AVAILABILITY OF RELATED DATA
Commentary summarising the country breakdown for Australia's major trading partners for the calendar year 2008 will not be available in this issue due to the delay in the release of services calendar year data. As advised in the February 2009 issue, the services time series data cube Table 9 is available in this issue but other related data cubes will be released on 17 June 2009 (not 19 June as previously advised).
