Please describe the information on both pictures and then make comparison and contrast if necessary.
The given two charts illustrate how the value of trade between China and Australia has changed from 1998 to 2004 as well as how the trade volume of four types of goods imported from China to Australia varied between 2003 and 2004.
It can be seen clearly from the first chart that the given period witnessed an increasing trend in both imports and exports. To be more specific，the former tripled from $6 to $18 billion while the latter experienced a less significant increase，rising from $4 to slightly more than $10 billion.
As for the second picture，it indicates that all types of imported goods gained popularity except clothing，which was the most popular in 2003 but replaced by toys and sports goods one year later. Despite a slight increase($500 to $ 800 billion)，furniture stilled ranked last. The trade volume of telecommunication goods，on the other hand，rose much more dramatically from $1500 to $ 2500 billion.
Overall，the net exports in Australia were negative and the deficit was gradually increasing from 1998 to 2004 and the toys and sports goods were the most welcomed in 2004.
