14 Sep 2018
Service exports continued growing in the second quarter of 2018, up by seven per cent year-on-year. Service imports also grew by seven per cent. Service exports increased particularly due to the growth in exports of construction and project deliveries, transport and other business services. Sweden was the most significant country of exports for Finland in both goods and services in 2017 and in the first half of 2018. The data appear 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.
