Composition of exports by value

After the gold boom of the 1860s there was a long period until about 1970 when the composition of New Zealand’s exports did not change dramatically. Wool, meat and dairy products comprised over three-quarters of the country’s exports by value. There was then a quite striking diversification of exports as forestry, fishing, horticulture and manufactured products began to account for a growing proportion of New Zealand’s export value.
