Explanation of symbols

Dataset is not available.


In this table, the Dutch import, (re)export and incoming and outgoing transit value according to border crossing are classified by the sections of the Standard International Trade Classification (SITC). The data is broken down further by continents and countries according to the Geonomenclature (GEONOM).

Data available from: January 2015.

Status of the figures:
The figures on international trade in goods are provisional for a longer period of time, as they can be adjusted on the basis of new or current source information. The provisional figures become revised provisional in the fourth quarter after a reporting year. The revised provisional figures will become definitive in the fourth quarter of the following year.

Changes as of June 6, 2024:
The provisional figures for March 2024 have been added. The provisional figures for October 2023 to February 2024 have been adjusted.

Changes as of November 22, 2023:
The figures for 2021 have been corrected. For this reporting year, some values (for the countries) were wrongly not settled. This has been fixed in this version.

When will new figures be published?
New figures become available about two months after a reporting month.
