COVID-19 and bushfires in March month

Quality assurance undertaken by the ABS confirmed that the COVID-19 pandemic and bushfires did not result in quality impacts to International Trade in Goods and Services statistics for March 2020. For information on the expected economic impacts of COVID-19 and the bushfires, please see the ABS Chief Economist Series paper Measuring natural disasters in the Australian economy.

Suspension of trend estimates

The trend series attempts to measure the underlying behaviour in international trade activity. The method used to calculate trend estimates in Balance of Payments series incorporates observations either side of the reference period, meaning that updated information can influence historical trend estimates. As such, changes to regular patterns in international trade caused by COVID-19 will significantly affect the measurement of the trend series.

It may be some time before the underlying trend in international trade activity can be accurately estimated. The trend series has therefore been suspended back to July 2018 and will be reinstated when more certainty emerges in the underlying trend in international trade.

Seasonally adjusted estimates

International Accounts uses the concurrent seasonal adjustment method, meaning that seasonal factors are re-estimated each time a new data point becomes available. If not appropriately accounted for, unusual real-world events, such as COVID-19, can distort estimates calculated using this method. From March 2020, seasonal factors for series that have been notably impacted by these events will be calculated using data up to and including February 2020, then projected from March 2020 onwards. This approach, known as the forward factor method, ensures that the seasonal factors are not distorted by COVID-19 impacts.

Analysis and comments

Balance on goods and services

In seasonally adjusted terms, the balance on goods and services was a surplus of $10,602m in March 2020, an increase of $6,737m on the surplus in February 2020.

The sum of seasonally adjusted balances for the three months to March 2020 was a surplus of $19,513m, an increase of $4,888m on the surplus of $14,625m for the three months to December 2019. However, if seasonal factors used in compiling the quarterly balance of payments are applied, the preliminary March quarter 2020 surplus was $19,084m, an increase of $5,537m on the December quarter 2019 surplus of $13,547m.

a. Data in this table are on a revised international merchandise trade basis and exclude value adjustments applied to balance of payments series.
 

International merchandise trade exports data presented in the above table are based on information reported by exporters to the Department of Home Affairs (Home Affairs). For commodities such as iron ore and coal, newly negotiated contract prices are not fully reflected in data first reported to Home Affairs. Final quantity and/or unit price information is updated progressively in international merchandise trade data as exporters revise the information provided to Home Affairs. When additional information for these commodities is available, the ABS may adjust the data to reflect actual transaction values.

Unit values in this publication are presented in Australian dollar terms. Movements in the unit values for some commodities incorporate movements in the United States dollar prices reported to Home Affairs and movements in the Australian dollar to United States dollar exchange rate.

On an international merchandise trade basis, in original terms (noting the footnote in the above table), between February 2020 to March 2020 the largest movements recorded for the following selected commodities were:

Iron ore lump, up $675m (37%), with quantities up 26% and unit values up 8%. Exports to:

  • China (excludes SARs and Taiwan) rose $454m (33%), with quantities up 21% and unit values up 10%
  • Japan rose $114m (65%), with quantities up 70% and unit values down 3%
  • Taiwan rose $73m (98%), with quantities up 85% and unit values up 7%.
     

Iron ore fines, up $1,698m (36%), with quantities up 30% and unit values up 4%. Exports to:

  • China (excludes SARs and Taiwan) rose $1,338m (33%), with quantities up 28% and unit values up 3%
  • Japan rose $236m (105%), with quantities up 85% and unit values up 11%
  • Hong Kong rose $70m (695%), with quantities up 589% and unit values up 15%.
     

Hard coking coal, up $80m (4%), with quantities down 5% and unit values up 9%. Exports to:

  • the Republic of Korea rose $105m (113%), with quantities up 94% and unit value up 9%

New COVID-19 publication

In response to the global COVID-19 crisis the ABS have released a new publication, International Merchandise Trade, Preliminary, Australia (cat. no. 5368.0.55.024). This release provides preliminary estimates for Australian international merchandise (goods) trade on a monthly basis to help measure the economic impact of COVID-19. These estimates are compiled from administrative data (customs records) sourced from the Department of Home Affairs and are subject to revision. This publication will run monthly until further notice. The final March monthly estimates will be published in International Trade in Goods and Services, Australia (cat. no. 5368.0). For more information on the range of additional products released by the ABS to help assess the impact of COVID-19 please see the COVID-19: Additional products to measure the impact page.

Value adjustments

International merchandise trade exports data presented in this publication are based on information reported by exporters to the Department of Home Affairs (Home Affairs). At the time of initial reporting to Home Affairs, the final prices at which transactions take place are not known for some commodities. Final quantity and/or unit price information is updated progressively in international merchandise trade data as exporters revise the information provided to Home Affairs.

For commodities such as iron ore and coal, newly negotiated contract prices are not fully reflected in data first reported to Home Affairs. When additional information on quantity and/or unit price for these commodities is available, the ABS may adjust the data to reflect actual transaction values.

Iron ore adjustments are applied on an international merchandise trade basis at the Australian Harmonized Export Commodity Classification (AHECC) level. Coal, coke and briquettes are adjusted on a balance of payments basis in current price, original terms. When actual final transaction prices become available estimates are replaced with these data.

In most instances, transfer of ownership occurs when goods cross the customs frontier. In certain circumstances the ownership of large value capital expenditure items can occur prior to the items crossing the customs frontier. The ABS may adjust the relevant balance of payments series to record the timing when transfer of ownership was affected.
