Goods manufactured abroad and used in products exported from the Netherlands
Imported goods and services required to realise exports from the Netherlands. There are two categories. The first category comprises imported raw materials and semi-fabricated products used to manufacture end products; e.g. oil to make factory machines run or spare parts used to manufacture bikes intended for the foreign market. The second category refers to products, for example computers made in China, which are imported in the Netherlands and subsequently re-exported to Germany. These are foreign products exported in the same state as previously imported, the so-called re-exports.
