Table description


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 January 18, 2023:
None. This is a new table.

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