Imports and Exports.
32. In 1879 the declared value of goods imported into Victoria was £15,035,538, and that of goods exported therefrom was £12,454,170. The excess of imports over exports was thus £2,581,368, and the total value of external trade was £27,489,708. Per head of the population the average value of the imports was £16 18s. 5d., and that of the exports was £14 0s. 4d. These proportionate values, although lower than they have generally been in Victoria, are higher than corresponding amounts in most other countries in the world.
