Trade in Goods

Trade in goods comprises tangible products, which add or subtract from the stock of material resources of a country by entering (imports) or leaving (exports) its economic territory.  It includes barter transactions or goods exchanged as part of gifts or grants. It excludes goods in transit or temporarily admitted or withdrawn, except for goods for inward or outward processing, as they do not add to or subtract from the stock of material resources of a country.
