The Queensland government on Friday revealed that exports from the state reached a record A$65.9-billion over the last 12 months.

Treasurer and Minister for Trade and Investment Curtis Pitt said a significant rise in the value of coal exports was the primary driver behind Queensland setting another record export total but exports of some agricultural commodities also rose in value.
