Release Information

In accordance with the International Monetary Fund's website:

Total exports (f.o.b.), total imports (c.i.f.) and balance of Belgium in millions of Euro (EUR). Data are based on the special trade system and therefore exclude bonded warehouse trade. Data are obtained from custom declarations for trade with non EU-member States (Extrastat) and from company declarations for trade with EU-member States (Intrastat). Companies whose exports to EU member States is less than 1 million Euro annually are not required to complete an Intrastat declaration (400,000 Euro for imports). For those companies, adjustments are made using data from VAT declarations. For Extrastat, all transactions on custom declarations with a value below 800 Euro or a weight below 1000 kilograms are not registered.

Please refer to the summary methodology located on the International Monetary Fund's website.

The monthly merchandise trade data are preliminary and subject to revision. Final data are compiled after 6 months.
