USA's foreign trade with Bulgaria, exports to Bulgaria and imports from Bulgaria 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.

In August Bulgaria was USA's 88. largest foreign trade partner. Rise from the previous month 3 places. Most of the value of trade between the countries consists of the import to USA. $96 million worth of trade was 8.2 per cent lower than in August of the previous year. In August the trade balance with Bulgaria was $57 million in deficit for United States of America.

The value of imports from Bulgaria decreased by 1.3 per cent compared to in August of the previous year, thus amounting to $77 million in August 2020. Major product categories of imports from Bulgaria were Sitc551 (essential oils, perfume and flavour materials), representing 9.4 percent of imports, Sitc874 (measuring, checking, analysing and controlling instruments and apparatus, n.e.s.) 8.5 % and Sitc222 (oil-seeds and oleaginous fruits of a kind used for the extraction of *soft* fixed vegetable oils (excluding flours and meals)) 6.2 % of the imports.

The value of exports to Bulgaria declined by 28.2 per cent compared to in August of the previous year, thus amounting to $19 million in August 2020. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc722 (tractors (other than those of headings 744.14 and 744.15)), which represented a share of 11.1 per cent of total exports, 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) 5.8 % and Sitc723 (civil engineering and contractors' plant and equipment; parts thereof) 5.7 % of the exports.

Development during January-August 2020

The trade in goods between January and August of 2020 was of lesser value than in the corresponding period of the previous year. The value of the trade was $770 million, down 19.3 %. During January-August the value of imports was $540 million. The export value was $230 million. Compared to the corresponding period in 2019, the value of both imports and exports decreased significantly. The decline in imports was -11.4 % and in the value of exports -33.2 %. The largest value in imports was in Sitc222 (oil-seeds and oleaginous fruits of a kind used for the extraction of *soft* fixed vegetable oils (excluding flours and meals)), worth $52 million. In export the largest value had Sitc283 (copper ores and concentrates; copper mattes; cement copper), worth being $32 million. From USA's point of view, the trade balance between the countries in January-August remained in deficit. The trade deficit was $311 million. The trade deficit continued to widen compared to the corresponding period in 2019. At that time, the deficit was $267 million.
