UK import and export trade is a main contributor to the overall economic growth of the UK.

In June 2017,

  • the UK deficit, in the seasonally adjusted goods and services balance of trade,  increased  by £2.0 billion to £4.6 billion from May 2017;

In June 2017, goods exports declined £792 million to £27.5 billion while goods imports increased £624 million to £40.2 billion. The resulting goods deficit increased to £12.7 billion.

In June 2017, services exports increased £454 million to £21.9 billion but services imports increased £1.086 billion to £13.7 billion. The resulting services surplus declined to £8.2 billion.


In June 2017, goods exports with European Union countries (EU28) increased to £14.0 billion, but goods imports from EU28 countries increased more, to £22.3 billion. The resulting goods deficit with EU28 countries increased to £8.3 billion.
