Finland's international trade grew compared to the year before in the last quarter of 2021
15 Mar 2022
In the last quarter of 2021, the combined exports of goods and services grew by EUR 5.4 billion compared to the corresponding quarter of 2020. Around three-quarters of this growth originated from exports of goods. Although the growth in exports of services was relatively smaller, exports did, however, grow by EUR 1.4 billion compared to the corresponding quarter in the previous year. Compared to the last quarter of 2020, the combined imports of goods and services grew even more than exports, by EUR 7.1 billion. The shares of goods and services in the growth were the same as in exports, that is, around 75 per cent was due to imports of goods and 25 per cent by imports of services. These data derive from Statistics Finland's statistics on international trade in goods and services, which are part of balance of payments .

Description: Statistics on international trade in goods and services describe exports and imports of goods and services with a broad classification of products and areas. The statistics describe the entire international trade and form a link between goods trade according to the IMTS manual (International Merchandise Trade Statistics) published by Finnish Customs and the BPM manual (Balance of Payments Manual) published by Statistics Finland. International trade in goods and services is part of the current account, so the statistics form part of Finland's balance of payments. The data are also used to produce data for the rest of the world sector in national accounts. The data are delivered to the Statistical Office of the European Communities, Eurostat, the European Central Bank (ECB), the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the OECD.
