The Economic Complexity Index (ECI) recently reported that Australia exported $243 billion and imported $219 billion, thus showcasing Australia’s economic leap since 1995 where the trade balance was 5 times less. Along with the increase in cruise ships, Australia is seeing about a 35% increase in its high-capacity fleets since the 1990s.
