In the second quarter of 2020, the combined exports of goods and services decreased by 18 per cent relative to the corresponding quarter of the previous year. International trade, or exports and imports, fell in both goods and services. Twenty-eight per cent less services were exported and 22 per cent less services were imported than in the previous year. The relative decrease in international trade was smallest in goods exports, which went down by 12 per cent. Imports of goods, in turn, fell by 20 per cent. These data derive from Statistics Finland's statistics on international trade in goods and services, which are part of balance of payments .

Description: Statistics on international trade in goods and services describe exports and imports of goods and services with a broad classification of products and areas. The statistics describe the entire international trade and form a link between goods trade according to the IMTS manual (International Merchandise Trade Statistics) published by Finnish Customs and the BPM manual (Balance of Payments Manual) published by Statistics Finland. International trade in goods and services is part of the current account, so the statistics form part of Finland's balance of payments. The data are also used to produce data for the rest of the world sector in national accounts. The data are delivered to the Statistical Office of the European Communities, Eurostat, the European Central Bank (ECB), the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the OECD.
