Publication of latest agri-food trade figures: EU agri-food exports remain high


The latest monthly agri-food trade report published today shows that the EU exports remain strong at 11.1 billion in April 2018. This represents an increase of 3.7% compared to April 2017.

The latest monthly agri-food trade report

Monthly imports values decreased on the other hand by 2% compared with last year and amounted to €9.6 billion. This results in an EU trade surplus for agri-food products at €1.5 billion. EU's exports to the USA, Russia, Japan and Turkey particularly increased over the last 12 months. Exports of wine, spirits and liqueurs and infant food keep performing very well. From May 2017 to April 2018, the EU became a net exporter of beet and cane sugar. The 2017 annual report published earlier this month confirmed that the EU remains the largest global exporter and importer of agri-food products. The monthly report provides a table presenting the trade balance and its development by product category from May 2016 to April 2018.
