Australia's current account picture is gradually improving despite deteriorating terms of trade, the result of higher export volumes and lower income outflows, the former providing welcome news for the Australia freight industry. Going forward we maintain that a current account surplus is likely as the Australian dollar depreciates, but this will increasingly be driven by lower imports, to the detriment of the domestic economy.

Australia's current account position continues to gradually improve, and we maintain our view that a current account surplus within the next few years (we are forecasting a broad balance by 2017). There have been two dynamics in play that have been contributing to the improvement in Australia's current account deficit over recent years. Firstly, the trade balance has gradually improved as commodity shipments have surged in volume terms, while import growth has been subdued owing to the weaker Australian dollar and slower investment growth. We expect these trends to continue to lead to an improvement in the trade account, even as export values struggle with the impact of lower iron ore and coal prices.
