Queensland Trade Profiles are now available.

QGSO recently released the Queensland Trade Profiles, a new online tool providing easy access to international trade statistics. The Queensland Trade Profiles allows users to generate profiles for single countries, country groups (such as the European Union and ASEAN), as well as custom country groups using international trade, tourism and international education data. Summary economic indicators such as gross domestic product and population are also available.  The Queensland Trade Profiles will be updated regularly as new data become available.
