Exports of merchandise trade for the year 2007 were €88,581m, up 2% on 2006. This rise was due to Organic chemicals.

Excluding these categories exports actually fell by 2%. Imports for 2007 were €62,179m, up 2% on 2006. This increase was due to Transport equipment.

If we exclude this, imports were flat. In December 2007 the value of exports was €6,116m, down €1,048m (-15%) on December 2006, while imports were €5,017m, down €351m (-7%). On a seasonally adjusted basis the value of exports in December 2007 was €6,310m, 14% down on November 2007, while imports were €4,970m, down 11%.

Preliminary estimates for January 2008 (see Table 5) show exports of €6,958m and imports of €5,328m. The corresponding seasonally adjusted values for January 2008 (see Table 2) are €7,198m for exports and €5,175m for imports.

A comparison of the preliminary January 2008 values with January 2007 is given in Table 5 at broad commodity level by principal country.
