USA's foreign trade with France, exports to France and imports from France in August 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.

France's share of USA's foreign trade in goods in August 2020 represented a share of 1.7 per cent. Share of USA's that month's exports was 1.5% and 1.9% of imports. In August France was USA's 15. largest foreign trade partner. Rise from the previous month 4 places. $5.6 billion worth of trade was 24.4 per cent lower than in August of the previous year. In August the trade balance with France was $2.0 billion in deficit for United States of America.

The value of imports from France decreased by 12.3 per cent compared to in August of the previous year, thus amounting to $3.8 billion in August 2020. Major product categories of imports from France were Sitc792 (aircraft and associated equipment; spacecraft (including satellites) and spacecraft launch vehicles; parts thereof), representing 15.0 percent of imports, Sitc112 (alcoholic beverages) 13.5 % and Sitc931 (special transactions and commodities not classified according to kind) 8.9 % of the imports.

The value of exports to France amounted to more than a third lower relative to the previous year's August, thus amounting to $1.8 billion in August 2020. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc792 (aircraft and associated equipment; spacecraft (including satellites) and spacecraft launch vehicles; parts thereof), which represented a share of 25.2 per cent of total exports, Sitc333 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude) 5.8 % and Sitc874 (measuring, checking, analysing and controlling instruments and apparatus, n.e.s.) 3.6 % of the exports.

Development during January-August 2020

During January-August, trade in goods between the two countries declined sharply (-26.2 %) over the same period last year. The value of the trade was $47.1 billion. During January-August the value of imports was $28.6 billion. The export value was $18.5 billion. Compared to the corresponding period in 2019, the value of both imports and exports decreased significantly. The decline in imports was -26.3 % and in the value of exports -26.1 %. The largest value in imports was in Sitc792 (aircraft and associated equipment; spacecraft (including satellites) and spacecraft launch vehicles; parts thereof), worth $5.7 billion. In export the largest value had Sitc792 (aircraft and associated equipment; spacecraft (including satellites) and spacecraft launch vehicles; parts thereof), worth being $5.5 billion. From USA's point of view, the trade balance between the countries in January-August remained in deficit. The trade deficit was $10.1 billion. The trade deficit narrowed compared to the corresponding period in 2019. At that time, the deficit was $13.8 billion.
