What is an Export-Tradding
What is an Import Tradding
An export is a function of international trade whereby goods produced in one country are shipped to another country for future sale or trade. The sale of such goods adds to the producing nation’s gross output. If used for trade, exports are exchanged for other products or services in other countries.
An import is a good or service brought into one country from another. The word “import” is derived from the word “port,” since goods are often shipped via boat to foreign countries. Along with exports, imports form the backbone of international trade; the higher the value of imports entering a country, compared to the value of exports, the more negative that country’s balance of trade becomes.
