The net value of Dutch exports accounts for 29% of annual gross domestic product, while their total value adds up to 69% of GDP, according to new calculations from the national statistics office CBS.
The difference is due to the value of products imported from another country and then re-exported through the Netherlands, the CBS said. The total value of exports has gone up from 55% of GDP to 69% since 1990.
In particular, the (re) export of industrial goods has shown strong growth, the CBS said.
