Cross-border trade and investment are central to the economic growth and dynamism of the EFTA countries, which are highly integrated in the global economy and are leading international investors. Together they ranked eighth in world merchandise trade and fifth in world commercial services trade in 2014. The EFTA States have developed one of the largest networks of free trade agreements, which today spans over 38 partners in addition to the EU.
EFTA Trade Statistics is a new, interactive tool that gives an overview of these relations. The data set covers trade relations between the EFTA States and their trading partners from 2002 through today. It is also possible to compare EFTA as a bloc, or an individual EFTA State. In addition, the tool allows users to track the type of merchandise traded between EFTA States and partner countries, and to export these data sets to Excel.
Over the next few weeks additional functions will be added to this initial version of the tool.
