Following successive deficits in international merchandise trade between 1995-96 and 1999-2000, Australia recorded two years of trade surplus. In 2001-02, increases were recorded for both exports (1.4% to $121.2b) and imports (1.2% to $119.7b), resulting in a surplus of $1.5b. This was the highest financial year surplus recorded since 1991-92 ($4.0b). Table 30.19 and graph 30.20 show the period since 1995-96.
