USA's foreign trade with Belgium, exports to Belgium and imports from Belgium in Juli 2020


The text of the following analysis is produced by a computer program. The program is a test version and its rule base at this stage is still quite limited.

In Juli 2020 Belgium represented 1.2 per cent of USA's foreign trade in goods, 2.0 % of USA's exports and 0.8 % of imports. In Juli Belgium was USA's 20. largest foreign trade partner. $3.8 billion worth of trade was 13.5 per cent lower than in Juli of the previous year. During the month, the balance of trade with Belgium was $781 million of surplus.

The value of imports from Belgium decreased by 15.3 per cent compared to in Juli of the previous year, thus amounting to $1.5 billion in Juli 2020. Major product categories of imports from Belgium were Sitc541 (medicinal and pharmaceutical products, other than medicaments of group 542), representing 30.2 percent of imports, Sitc542 (medicaments (including veterinary medicaments)) 13.1 % and Sitc681 (silver, platinum and other metals of the platinum group) 8.4 % of the imports.

The value of exports to Belgium declined by 12.2 per cent compared to in Juli of the previous year, thus amounting to $2.3 billion in Juli 2020. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc781 (motor cars and other motor vehicles principally designed for the transport of persons (other than motor vehicles for the transport of ten or more persons, including the driver), including station-wagons and racing cars), which represented a share of 24.2 per cent of total exports, Sitc542 (medicaments (including veterinary medicaments)) 8.4 % and Sitc667 (pearls and precious or semiprecious stones, unworked or worked) 7.2 % of the exports.

Development during January-Juli 2020

The trade in goods between January and Juli of 2020 was of lesser value than in the corresponding period of the previous year. The value of the trade was $27.7 billion, down 16.3 %. During January-Juli the value of imports was $11.6 billion. The export value was $16.1 billion. Compared to the corresponding period in 2019, the value of imports decreased by -6.4% and the value of exports by -22.2 %. The largest value in imports was in Sitc541 (medicinal and pharmaceutical products, other than medicaments of group 542), worth $4.1 billion. In export the largest value had Sitc781 (motor cars and other motor vehicles principally designed for the transport of persons (other than motor vehicles for the transport of ten or more persons, including the driver), including station-wagons and racing cars), worth being $2.0 billion. The trade balance between USA and Belgiumin between January and Juli was in surplus for USA. The timing surplus was $4.5 billion.
