Net trade balance at SEK 2.4 billion in May

Foreign trade in goods resulted in a net trade surplus of SEK 2.4 billion in May 2020, according to preliminary calculations. In May 2019, there was a net trade surplus of SEK 6.1 billion.

The value of exports in May 2020 was SEK 101.5 billion, while imports were valued at SEK 99.1 billion. The corresponding values for May 2019 were SEK 136.7 billion for exports and SEK 130.6 billion for imports. Exports of goods have thus decreased by 26 percent in value, and imports decreased by 24 percent in value compared with May 2019. The number of weekdays in May 2020 was two less compared with May 2019.

Trade in goods with countries outside the EU resulted in a surplus of SEK 16.7 billion, while EU trade resulted in a deficit of SEK 14.3 billion. As from February 2020, the United Kingdom no longer forms part of the group EU Member States and is included, instead, in the group Non-EU Member States.

During January – May 2020, the value of exports of goods decreased by 7 percent, while the value of imports of goods decreased by 11 percent compared with the corresponding period a year ago. Exports were valued at SEK 598.1 billion and imports were valued at SEK 561.0 billion, resulting in a net trade surplus of SEK 37.1 billion for January – May 2020. The corresponding net trade balance for these months a year earlier was a surplus of SEK 17.0 billion.
