Abstract

Goods and Services Trade by Country statistics bring together imports and exports of both goods and services by country to present a comprehensive view of economic trade between New Zealand and our main trading partners.

The Overseas Merchandise Trade Prices and Volumes Indexes measure changes in the levels of prices and volumes of imports and exports of merchandise trade to and from New Zealand.

The Overseas Services Trade Price Indexes measure changes in the levels of prices of imports and exports of services trade to and from New Zealand.

Purpose

The purpose of the International Trade Statistics release is to provide a quarterly snapshot of New Zealand's trade with the rest of the world. The overarching release will combine the Overseas Trade Index and Goods and Services Trade by Country releases into a single release.

The Goods and Services Trade by Country release brings together imports and exports of goods and services, broken down by country, on a quarterly basis. It presents a comprehensive view of economic trade between New Zealand and our main trading partners. Potential uses of the data include trade negotiations (MFAT), weighting for the Trade-Weighted Index (TWI) by RBNZ and forecasting for the Balance of Payments and Gross Domestic Product releases by commercial banks, Treasury and RBNZ.

Overseas Trade Indexes provides statistical information on how import and export prices and volume levels have changed between time periods, i.e. quarterly and annually.

The Overseas Services Trade Price Indexes measure changes in the levels of prices of imports and exports of services trade between New Zealand and the rest of the world.
