TRADE IN CULTURAL GOODS OVER TIME

The value of exports of cultural goods has increased since 2002-03 from $576.2m to $585.1m in 2008-09. The product group showing the largest percentage increase in value of exports over this time was Radio and television receivers and apparatus for sound or video recording or reproduction which increased by 33% between 2002-03 and 2008-09. Some of this increase may be due to inflation rather than increases in production.
