The two-way tourist traffic between the UAE and Australia is unaffected by the post-September 11 industry shocks. Rather the industry is showing a sign of boom as far as Australia as a destination is concerned.

Talking to Khaleej Times on Tuesday, the Australian Consul General in Dubai, Peter Linford, said that despite having a strong Middle East presence, Dubai holds the top spot for Australian mission as far as the tourist traffic and trade volume is concerned. Australia attracts 10,000 tourists annually from the UAE. Presently, around 4000 Australians are living in the UAE. He said that the UAE-Australia trade and economic relations are growing stronger day by day as the latest figures for the year 2000-2002 registered an impressive Aus dollar 2.3 billion two-way trade.

Australian exports to the UAE in the 2000-2002 were valued at Aus$1,164 million, with imports from the UAE, comprising mainly crude petroleum and petroleum products, valued at Aus$1,114 million.

The exports to the UAE mainly comprised passenger motor vehicles (up from 115 million to 218 million), engineering products, construction and engineering services, dairy products, Meat, fresh produce, live animals, wheat and gold.(The Khaleej Times)
