Table description


This dataset provides figures on the development of export value and the contributions made by the various sections and divisions according to the Standard International Trade Classification (SITC), destination countries according to the Geonomenclature (GEONOM) and broken down by export flow (re-exports and domestic exports).

The provisional figures become definitive in Q4 of the year following the reporting year. Figures over the previous years have already become definitive.

Changes as of 25 September 2020:
None, this is a new table.

When will new figures become available?
New figures will be published in Q4 of the year following the reporting year.

Description topics

Export growth
Year-on-year changes in absolute value. Annual changes for 2015 were omitted due to the break in series 2014/2015.
Contribution to total export growth
The contribution of a specific category to the total percentage growth in goods exports, calculated by dividing the absolute change in a category by the total value change of goods exports, multiplied by the annual change of goods exports as a percentage.
