IMPORTERS AND EXPORTERS
Two articles Australia's Exporters, 2002-03 and Australia's Importers, 2002-03were published recently. They contain estimates of the total number of exporters and importers of goods and services in Australia, including the number of goods exporters by state (based on state of production of exports and state of location of business). An analysis by industry also contains the value of exports/imports, size of business and export patterns. The articles can be accessed free from the ABS web site, by first selecting 'Themes', then 'International Trade', then 'Topics of Interest'.
