All other East Asian economies were smaller than Australia in 1986 with South Korea the only economy to overtake Australia by 1996. Trade The East Asia region accounts for a large and increasing proportion of Australias exports. In 1996 Australia exported $A 44.8 billion to the region, accounting for 58% of Australias total exports. While Australian exports to East Asia have grown dramatically in recent years there is evidence that Australias share of this trade is diminishing and that Australia is losing ground to Europe and North America as a source of goods for East Asia. Japan is Australias largest export market in the region (and the world) accounting for 20.1% of total exports. The next largest market is South Korea with 9.5% of exports while the combined countries of ASEAN account for 15%. Australia enjoys a significant trade surplus with East Asia with imports from East Asia in 1996 Table 4.2 Regional GDP, Trade and Prices - 1996 Real GDP Trade Prices Total Annual Per Capita Exports Imports Change $US bn % Change $US $US bn $US bn % Japan 5 285 3.4 42 215 411 311 0.1 China 738 9.7 615 151 139 8.3 Three Dragons 911 6.1 12 570 426 442 4.6 Hong Kong 150 4.5 23 762 181 199 6.0 South Korea 486 6.8 10 834 129 144 5.0 Taiwan 275 5.6 12 919 116 99 3.1 ASEAN 666 7.1 1 583 334 342 5.9 Brunei 6 2.0 20 000 2 3 3.2 Indonesia 213 7.7 1 101 51 44 8.0 Malaysia 92 8.2 4 594 77 75 3.5 Philippines 74 5.5 1 054 21 19 8.5 Singapore 84 7.0 27 998 123 125 1.4 Thailand 178 6.6 2 997 55 73 5.8 Vietnam 19 9.3 251 5 4 7.1 Australia 362 4.2 20 354 57 62 1.5 Northern Territory 4 2.7 21 213 1.0 0.3 2.1 Source: ABS Cat.
