Change in the external trade balance: 2013 compared with 2008

The external trade balance is calculated as the difference between exports and
imports. A surplus or reduction of deficit in the trade balance can result from a
decrease in the value of imports, an increase in the value of exports, or both. The
map compares the volume of the external trade balance in 2013 with that in 2008,
showing positive changes in most countries. In 2009, following the contraction in international
trade, 12 Member States saw reductions in their external trade balance.
