CoverConsiderable drop in goods trade with Latin America between 2008 and 2009 — EU trade deficit halved
Statistics in focus. General and regional statistics. External trade. Economy and finance 35/2010.
EU-27 trade and investment with selected Latin American countries.
Since 2002, the EU has recorded a deficit in trade in goods with the 17 countries composing Latin America. In 2009, the deficit amounted to EUR 8.6 billion, considerably less than in the previous three years. The products most exported to Latin America by the EU were Machinery and Road vehicles whereas imports were dominated by Vegetables and fruit (especially from Argentina and Brazil), Feeding stuff for animals, Petroleum (mainly from Venezuela) and Metalliferous ores (especially from Brazil). For the trade in services, a 14% increase in the total volume was registered between 2007 and 2008 (to reach EUR 47.6 billion). The EU’s surplus in the trade of services amounted to EUR 8.7 billion. In relative terms, the EU surplus was considerable with Venezuela. Foreign direct investment flows in the Latin American economies were substantially reduced in 2008 (-43% compared to 2007). Increases were noted for Mexico and Argentina but disinvestments occurred in Brazil. [+]


CoverExtra EU 27 trade falls by 20 per cent in 2009.
Statistics in focus. External trade 28/2010.

Extra EU-27 trade fell by a fifth between 2008 and 2009. Imports fell by more than exports, leading to a reduction in the overall trade deficit of over EUR 150 billion, almost 60%. EU-27 remained the largest player in the world in trade in goods in 2008, the latest year for which comparable data are available. EU-27’s exports of goods to the United States fell by more than the overall average, but it remained by far the most important destination. However, exports to Russia, which had become the second largest trading partner for exports in 2008, fell by over one third between 2008 and 2009, putting Russia in fourth place behind Switzerland and China. China remained the largest source of EU-27 imports in 2009, recording a fall of 13% since 2008, much lower than the overall fall of 23%. In contrast, EU-27 imports from Russia, Norway, Japan and Brazil all fell by over one quarter. While all member states recorded falls in both exports and imports in 2009, the reductions were particularly marked in Greece, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Romania and Finland, all of whom saw falls of over 30% in total trade.

Comercio exterior comunitario de productos de acuicultura: análisis de las especies de elevado valor comercial
Boletín Económico. Información Comercial Española. # 2987. Mayo 2010

La sobreexplotación de los recursos pesqueros mundiales ha propiciado un desarrollo notable de la actividad acuícola desde los años setenta. Con una capacidad productiva que garantiza la viabilidad técnica y comercial, el aprovisionamiento de los mercados domésticos ha seguido un fuerte desarrollo gracias al incremento de los flujos comerciales internacionales. En particular, tres especies (rodaballo, dorada y lubina) han alcanzado un alto valor comercial, con la Unión Europea como principal mercado de consumo. Este trabajo analiza el comportamiento de los flujos importadores y exportadores de estos productos, así como sus precios, protección arancelaria y tasas de cobertura comerciales, proporcionando una idea del grado de desarrollo de la actividad acuícola y de los retos que tiene la industria transformadora en mercados más amplios y exigentes.

EU 27 exports have little impact on trade deficit with Brazil as imports continue their six year climb.
Statistics in focus. External trade 17/2010.

Between 2000 and 2008 the value of EU-27 imports from Brazil almost doubled, while export values, after a sharp fall between 2001 and 2003, more than doubled from the 2003 low point. However, in spite of this performance, the EU trade deficit widened consistently until a slight reduction in 2008. Less than half of the Member States posted a positive trade balance with Brazil in 2008 and, of the eight major trade partners, five posted deficits in excess of EUR 1 billion; only one, Germany, posted a significant positive balance of EUR 1.7 billion. For both imports and exports, only three Member States reported negative growth rates from 2000 - 2008. However, the highest growth rates came from countries with low trade values. Imports of food and drink, as well as crude materials, posted the highest values for 2008 with more than half of total imports. By far the largest export sector was in machinery and transport equipment, posting half the total export value for 2008.

La Comisión ha aprobado hoy un conjunto de medidas para apoyar a los exportadores de bananos de los Estados de África, el Caribe y el Pacífico (ACP) por valor de 190 millones EUR. Esta propuesta formaba parte del histórico Acuerdo de Ginebra sobre el comercio de bananos. En diciembre de 2009 la UE concluyó este Acuerdo con los países latinoamericanos y los Estados Unidos, que pone fin a quince años de diferencias y reduce el arancel comunitario sobre los bananos importados de los países latinoamericanos. Las medidas adoptadas hoy tienen como objetivo apoyar a los exportadores de bananos de los países ACP para que puedan adaptarse a este nuevo entorno comercial, teniendo en cuenta la situación específica de cada país. Se centrarán en tres objetivos: estimular la competitividad del sector bananero, promover la diversificación económica y hacer frente a las repercusiones más generales desde el punto de vista social, económico y medioambiental.
