International Trade Statistics Yearbook

The International Trade Statistics Yearbook is issued in two volumes which are prepared at different points of the year. Volume I - Trade by Country is compiled in the first half of the year to allow for an advanced release of an overview of international merchandise trade in the previous year and for a much earlier publication of the available country (area) data. Volume II – Trade by Commodity contains the detailed tables showing international trade in main commodity groups and is finalized approximately six months after the completion of Volume I as the preparation of those tables requires additional country data which, normally, become available later in the year. Volume II contains also updated versions of the two world trade tables published in Volume I.
