Since 2004, France has been recording trade deficits due the gradual erosion of the export-oriented industry, the appreciation of the euro and the increasing dependency on imports of energy and manufactured products. In 2017, the biggest trade deficits were recorded with: China & Hong Kong, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy and Belgium; while the biggest trade surpluses were recorded with: the Middle East, the UK, Africa and Switzerland.

Latest Updates

The French trade deficit shrank to EUR 4.73 billion in October 2019 from a downwardly revised EUR 5.42 billion in the previous month and slightly below market expectations of a EUR 4.8 billion gap. This was the smallest trade gap since May, as exports surged 3.4 percent while imports went up at a softer 1.5 percent.
