Over recent decades, Australia’s trade has become increasingly oriented toward east Asia (excluding Japan). Rapid growth in economies from this region is often attributed to their export-oriented policies, with the volume of east Asian exports having increased six-fold over the past 20 years. Using information on the destinations and uses of east Asian exports, this article examines the characteristics of both intra-regional trade and exports to economies outside the region.
