The value of intermediate goods and services imported into Yarra Ranges by local industry sectors is estimated at $2.716 billion.
Definition: Regional Imports data represents the value ($) of goods and services imported into the defined region by businesses / organisations in each of the industry sectors. Another way of defining imports is as an outflow of money from the region, i.e. A local business outsourcing accountancy services to a firm in another region which results in an outflow of money thus they are importing services. No distinction is made between domestic and international imports, and so imports into Yarra Ranges include goods and services sourced from the broader Greater Melbourne region.
Note: Yarra Ranges Shire Council has access to the REMPLAN Gap Analysis Module which details the types of goods and services imported into Yarra Ranges thereby highlighting potential opportunities for import replacement the local employment generation.
