China’s increasing demand for agricultural imports presents enormous opportunities for Australian agricultural exports to this growing market. To best capture the emerging opportunities, it is pertinent for Australian agricultural industries to gain an in-depth understanding of the changing patterns of agricultural trade between Australia and China and the driving forces behind such dynamics. This paper adds to the understanding of Australia- China agricultural trade by constructing and examining several important trade-related indices, e.g., trade intensity index, revealed comparative advantage, and trade complementarity index. Implications are drawn for promoting future agricultural trade and cooperation between Australia and China.
