ComExt Intra- and Extra-EU trade data


Data description

EurostatThe ComExt Intra- and Extra-European trade database provides statistics on merchandise trade among European Union member states, and between member states and global partners. ComExt, published by Eurostat, is based on data provided by the statistical agencies of the EU member states and trading partners.

Data is classified according to the Combined Nomenclature (CN) system used by Eurostat. The CN is an eight-digit subdivision of the Harmonised System (HS), comprising four two-digit levels: HS2, HS4, HS6 and CN8. Trading partners are designated a three-digit or four-digit code.

More international trade data resources are described on this EUI Library directory. More European data resources are introduced on this Library page.
