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 January 14, 2022:
The provisional figures for November 2021 have been added.

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