Two-way goods trade between Australia and China hit $208.8 billion over the 11 months to November, according to figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics on 7 January. The figure is higher than the comparable period in 2019, despite the increasingly strained relationship between the two countries. Imports from China over the subject period increased by five per cent to $76.3 billion, while Australian exports to China rose to $132.5 billion. The value of iron ore shipments fell by two per cent in November, while LNG sales were up eight per cent.
