This article examines the long-run equilibrium relationships between the Australian coking coal export and selected variables. Upon testing with appropriate co-integration and vector error-correction models, we detected that the exchange rate of A$/US$, Australian coking coal price and world supply of coking coal have a negative impact on Australian coking coal export in the long run as well as the short run. On the other hand, world demand for coking coal and USA coking coal prices have positive relationships with the Australian coking coal export in the long run and short run. All of these relationships are statistically significant at the 1% level.
