Description topics

Imports
All goods imported into the free economic trade zone of the Netherlands for use or consumption, i.e. if import duties and national taxes have been paid. Imports also include goods imported temporarily into the Netherlands which, by order of a non-resident, undergo treatment (active finishing trade). The same applies to goods from outside the EU which enter the free economic trade zone of the Netherlands through bonded warehouses. The statistical value is the value of the goods at the moment they cross the border. The value of goods imported from EU member states includes freight and insurance charges up to the Dutch border. The value of goods imported from countries outside the EU includes freight and insurance charges up to the external borders of the EU.
Exports
All goods initially imported into or manufactured in the Netherlands and intended for use or consumption outside the Netherlands. Exports also include goods temporarily exported from the Netherlands which, by order of a Dutch resident living abroad, undergo treatment (passive finishing trade). The value of exports includes freight and insurance charges up to the Dutch border.
Balance of trade
The value of exports minus imports.
