Export and import figures may differ in Statistics Sweden’s various statistical products in the Balance of Payments and the National Accounts. Coordination of the current account was implemented in connection with the publication of the first quarter of 2020 for both the Balance of Payments and the National Accounts calculations of GDP in the real sector accounts. This has led to revisions of the time series. These adjustments also entail that estimates of foreign trade in services published as part of the Balance of Payments and the National Accounts may differ from the values published in the survey on foreign trade in services.
