7 per cent during the March quarter to $11,000 million according to the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics.

Exports of crude oil and other refinery feedstock were the largest contributors – accounting for 70 per cent or $499 million.

The index of export prices rose 5.5 per cent during the quarter.
