Asia Pacific | 1st Quarter 2014

Most obvious declines in estimated and forecast trade are in China, Japan and Australia in Asia. Australia is highly dependent on China as an export partner, particularly for its iron ore and coal and, as China’s infrastructure construction boom slows and China’s economic growth also slows, Australia’s forecast export growth is also expected to fall. Japan’s export trade has failed to pick up despite the devaluation of the Yen against the US Dollar and this trend is likely to continue into 2014 with exports pretty much static compared to a mild growth in 2013.
