Table description


This table shows a summary of the latest figures on Dutch international trade. In this table the values of Dutch imports and exports, the trade balance and changes therein are broken down into aggregated categories of goods according to the Standard International Trade Classification (SITC sections) and a number of geographical areas.

Data available: from January 2002.

Status of the figures:
The figures on international trade are subject to adjustment when new or updated sources become available. The figures are therefore provisional for a longer period. These provisional figures are adjusted ten, fourteen and nineteen weeks after the month under review. In the third quarter of the current year, figures of the previous year become definite and the definite year figure becomes available on StatLine.

Changes as of October 12, 2020:
The provisional figures of August 2020 have been added.

Changes as of January 31, 2020:
The underlying coding of classification “countries” used in this table has been adjusted.
It is now in line with the standard encoding defined by CBS.
The structure and data of the table have not been adjusted.

When will new figures be published?
The figures become available approximately six weeks after the month under review.

Description topics

Current series starting 2007
The figures are calculated differently from 2008 onwards than in earlier years. The figures in the current series starting in 2007 have been corrected for this break in the series.
Import value
The value of all goods brought into the Dutch economy for consumption. This is the case when import duties and national taxes have been paid. For imports from EU countries this is the value of the goods including freight and insurance up to the Dutch border (CIF). For imports from non-EU countries this is the value including freight and insurance up to the border of the European Union.
Export value
The value of all goods, including costs insurance freight (CIF) up to the Dutch border. The goods are domestically produced or imported.
Balance of trade
The value of exports minus imports.
Change in import value
Change as a percentage compared with the same period in the previous year.

Explanation
For a country group the year-on-year-change will only be reported if the country composition has not changed compared with the same period in the previous year.
Change in export value
