Britain is the fifth largest trading nation in the world and, as a member of the European Community, part of the world's largest trading bloc, accounting for 20 per cent of all trade in goods and services. Exports of goods and services are equivalent to over 25 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP). Britain is a major supplier of machinery, vehicles, aerospace products, electrical and electronic equipment and chemicals, and a significant oil exporter. 82 per cent of exports and 77,5 per cent of imports are manufactured goods.

2. Since the mid-1970s North Sea oil has made a significant contribution to Britain's overseas trade - the surplus op trade in oil in 1991 amounted to about £ 1,200 million. Production peaked in the mid-1980s, when exports of fuels made up one fifth of total exports.

3. Countries also trade abroad in things like insurance, tourism, foreign investment, etc. which are known as invisible imports and exports. When a country receives money from abroad for things other than goods, the transaction is called an invisible export.
