 Economy - Australia - Oceania: japan mineral, australia economy, industry manufacturing, banking foreign, focus services
Wool has been a staple of the economy since the colonial period, and it was important to the development of agriculture as the country’s largest industry.
Manufacturing grew rapidly between the 1940s and 1970s, and mining became a leading sector in the economy during the 1960s.
This is due in part to increased demand among Australia’s principal trading partners, particularly Japan, for mineral ores, to fluctuating demand on world markets for agricultural products, and to fierce competition from heavily subsidized agricultural producers in the United States and Europe.

 Economy of Europe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Whilst these Western European states rapidly improved their economies, by the 1980s, the economy of the COMECON was struggling, mainly due to the massive cost of the Cold War.
The economy of Europe was by this time dominated by the EU, a huge economic and political organization with 15 of Europe's states as full members.
The EU economy is expected to grow further over the next decade as more countries join the union - especially considering that the new States are usually poorer than the EU average, and hence the expected fast GDP growth will help achieve the dynamic of the united Europe.

Western Europe's economies grew at roughly 2%, not enough to cut deeply into the region's high unemployment; the EU economy produced 22% of GWP.
