Dutch exports make up 29 percent of GDP. GDP is the total of everything everyone earns in the Netherlands. The total value of exported goods and services equals 69 percent of GDP. The difference is caused by the foreign goods and services previously imported that are utilised in the export products. These are imported to realise the exports. These may be goods that are re-exported without major processing. For example, a Dutch merchant buys computers in China to resell them in Germany. The value added of the re-exports is low.
