December 2012

  • UK Trade shows the value of imports and exports and is a key contributor to the overall economic growth of the UK.
  • Seasonally adjusted, the UK’s deficit on trade in goods and services was estimated to have been £3.2 billion in December, compared with a deficit of £3.6 billion in November. However, despite erratic changes in the deficit over the last 12 months, the level across that period has remained largely flat.
  • There was a deficit of £8.9 billion on goods, partly offset by an estimated surplus of £5.7 billion on services.
  • Excluding oil and erratic items, the deficit on trade in goods was £22.2 billion in quarter four. This was £0.2 billion more than the preceding quarter and £0.6 billion higher than quarter four 2011.
  • Export prices (excluding oil and erratics) rose by 0.3% in the latest quarter; import prices rose by 0.2% in the same period.
