Export to EU- a few facts and figures
Operating as a single market with 28 countries, the EU is a major world trading power. EU economic policy is stated as seeking to sustain growth by investing in transport, energy and research – while minimising the impact of further economic development on the environment.
The EU's economy — measured in terms of the goods and services it produces (GDP) — is now bigger than the US's: EU GDP in 2012: €12 945 402 million
With just 7% of the world’s population, the EU's trade with the rest of the world accounts for around 20% of global exports and imports. Around two-thirds of EU countries’ total trade is done with other EU countries. Trade has been hit by the global recession, but the EU remains the world’s largest player accounting for 16.4% of global imports in 2011. The EU is followed by the United States with 15.5% of all imports, and China with 11.9%. The EU was also the biggest exporter, accounting for 15.4% of all exports – compared with 13.4% for China and the 10.5% for the United States.
