Imports/Exports in Portugal

Overview by Globlatrade.net:

Portugal's economy is open to foreign investment, trade represents more than 70% of  the GDP (during the period 2007-2009). Becoming a member of the European Union changed the structure of the Portuguese imports and exports.  The country exports more and more technological equipment instead of the traditional agricultural products or products from the textile and clothing industry.

The European Union is Portugal's main customer, followed by the United States. Other commercial partners of Portugal are China, Nigeria and Brazil.

The trade balance of Portugal is structurally in deficit, however its balance experienced an improvement during the crisis, due to the fall of imports which was much higher than the drop on exports. Since the beginning of 2011, Portugal has experienced a decline in its trade deficit over the same period in 2010, thanks to higher exports.
