Trade

Exporting is a critical component of South Australia’s economy.

Our commercial ports provide a gateway to the world and are equipped to handle a range of containerised and bulk cargoes.

Adelaide Airport has international services connecting Adelaide with all the major Asian hubs, as well as Europe and the US.

South Australia’s export performance has been gathering momentum since the Global Financial Crisis.

Recently, our export performance has seen strong growth in the value of wheat, metal ores and refined copper.

In the year to November 2013, South Australia’s export goods were worth $11.3 billion, a 5.1% increase on the previous 12 months.

India, China and Malaysia continue to grow strongly as markets for South Australian exports.
