Value added due to exports
The value added equals the production (in basic prices) minus intermediate consumption (in purchasing prices). The output is valued at basic prices, i.e. the selling price excluding the trade and transport margin and excluding any taxes on products paid and subsidies on products received. The intermediate use is valued at the purchase value excluding non-deductible VAT.
Imports intermediate goods and services
Goods and services used as inputs in the production process.
Imports for re-exports
