World trade web­site launched

North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - News -

THE Federal Govern­ment has launched a new web­site high­light­ing Aus­tralia’s trad­ing ac­tiv­i­ties with other coun­tries around the world.

‘Aus­tralia’s Trade at a Glance’ is an in­ter­ac­tive web­site that gives key trad­ing in­for­ma­tion about our im­ports, ex­ports, trade by state and ter­ri­to­ries, with coun­tries of the G20 and Asia-Pa­cific Eco­nomic Co­op­er­a­tion high­lighted on the site.

Ac­cord­ing to Federal Mem­ber for Mur­ray Shar­man Stone, the web­site can fo­cus on par­tic­u­lar ar­eas like Vic­to­ria, where the data shows that the main ex­port­ing items to China are live­stock, crops, min­er­als and pro­cessed agri­cul­ture.

“This web­site shows Aus­tralia’s strong trad­ing links with our G20 part­ners, who to­gether, ac­count for over 76 per cent of world trade and 86 per cent of global gross do­mes­tic prod­uct,” Dr Stone said.

“If you are in­ter­ested in who Aus­tralia’s big­gest trad­ing part­ners are or what we ex­port and im­port this web­site will be very help­ful.”

The web­site can be viewed at www.­tralias-trade-at-aglance/
