Overseas trade in goods and services may have an impact on Australian culture that extends well beyond its economic significance. The imports of items such as films, music and books may influence how Australians think and act in a variety of ways.
The range of cultural goods and services included in the following tables is based on the product classification of the Australian Culture and Leisure Classifications (ACLC) (cat. no. 4902.0). More detailed information about the ACLC and what items have been included is available in the CMC SWG publication Australia's Trade in Culture 2000-01, Appendix 1.
