USA's foreign trade with Belgium, exports to Belgium and imports from Belgium in Juli 2021


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 Belgium was USA's 20. most important foreign trade partner. In Juli 2021 Belgium represented 1.1 per cent of USA's foreign trade in goods, 1.8 % of USA's exports and 0.8 % of imports. Amounting trade to worth of $4.4 billion was 13.8 per cent bigger than in Juli of the previous year. During the month, the balance of trade with Belgium was $730 million of surplus.

The value of imports from Belgium was 17.1 per cent higher than in Juli of the previous year, thus amounting to $1.8 billion. Major product categories of imports from Belgium were Sitc541 (medicinal and pharmaceutical products, other than medicaments of group 542), representing 19.9 percent of imports, Sitc542 (medicaments (including veterinary medicaments)) 12.9 % and Sitc681 (silver, platinum and other metals of the platinum group) 10.4 % of the imports.

The value of exports to Belgium were 11.5 percent higher than in Juli of the previous year, thus amounting to $2.5 billion. The largest product groups of exports were: Sitc872 (instruments and appliances, n.e.s., for medical, surgical, dental or veterinary purposes), which represented a share of 7.8 per cent of total exports, Sitc541 (medicinal and pharmaceutical products, other than medicaments of group 542) 7.7 % and Sitc667 (pearls and precious or semiprecious stones, unworked or worked) 5.8 % of the exports.

Development during January-Juli 2021

During January-Juli trade in goods with Belgium has grown slower than USA's trade in goods with the rest of the world. During January-Juli, the value of trade in goods between the two countries rose to $31.4 billion. Growth compared to the corresponding period of the previous year was 13.7 percent. During January-Juli the value of imports was $12.5 billion. The export value was $18.9 billion. Compared to the corresponding period of the previous year, the value of imports increased by 8.5% and the value of exports by 17.5%. The largest product group in terms of imports has been Sitc541 (medicinal and pharmaceutical products, other than medicaments of group 542), worth $3.1 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 $2.3 billion. The trade balance between USA and Belgiumin between January and Juli was in surplus for USA. The timing surplus was $6.3 billion.
