As from the publication on 26 March 2020, the group EU27_2020 has been added to this table. The United Kingdom no longer forms part of this group. The former group EU28, in which the United Kingdom is included, will also be shown in this table for a period of time.

Definitions and explanations

The statistics about the Swedish foreign trade with other EU countries are missing information about the country of origin. As a consequence the information about partner country on imports is equal to the country of consignment in the Swedish foreign trade in goods statistics. Commodities which originate from a non-EU country but are imported to EU (properly EC) via another EU country get this EU country as the country of consignment in the Swedish import statistics. Therefore one may claim that the information about the Swedish import from EU is overestimated.
