USA's foreign trade with France, exports to France and imports from France in November 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 November 2020 represented a share of 1.7 per cent. Share of USA's that month's exports was 1.5% and 1.8% of imports. In November France was USA's 15. largest foreign trade partner. $5.7 billion worth of trade was 20.8 per cent lower than in November of the previous year. In November the trade balance with France was $1.9 billion in deficit for United States of America.

The value of imports from France decreased by 11.2 per cent compared to in November of the previous year, thus amounting to $3.8 billion in November 2020. Major product categories of imports from France were Sitc792 (aircraft and associated equipment; spacecraft (including satellites) and spacecraft launch vehicles; parts thereof), representing 17.3 percent of imports, Sitc112 (alcoholic beverages) 10.8 % and Sitc896 (works of art, collectors' pieces and antiques) 7.6 % of the imports.

The value of exports to France amounted to more than a third lower relative to the previous year's November, thus amounting to $1.9 billion in November 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 24.1 per cent of total exports, Sitc333 (petroleum oils and oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude) 4.6 % and Sitc874 (measuring, checking, analysing and controlling instruments and apparatus, n.e.s.) 3.5 % of the exports.

Development during January-November 2020

During January-November, trade in goods between the two countries declined sharply (-27.0 %) over the same period last year. The value of the trade was $64.3 billion. During January-November the value of imports was $39.1 billion. The export value was $25.2 billion. Compared to the corresponding period in 2019, the value of both imports and exports decreased significantly. The decline in imports was -27.0 % and in the value of exports -26.9 %. The largest value in imports was in Sitc792 (aircraft and associated equipment; spacecraft (including satellites) and spacecraft launch vehicles; parts thereof), worth $7.1 billion. In export the largest value had Sitc792 (aircraft and associated equipment; spacecraft (including satellites) and spacecraft launch vehicles; parts thereof), worth being $7.1 billion. From USA's point of view, the trade balance between the countries in January-November remained in deficit. The trade deficit was $13.9 billion. The trade deficit narrowed compared to the corresponding period in 2019. At that time, the deficit was $19.1 billion.
