Austrian foreign trade

Austrian foreign trade statistics deal with cross-border trade between the investigation area and countries abroad. In the context of foreign trade statistics, “abroad” refers to the area outside the investigation area.

As a result of differing data collection systems, a distinction has been made between trade with member states of the European Union (intra-trade) and trade with other countries (extra-trade) from 1995 onwards. Since 1995, statistics concerning trade with the EU member states have been compiled using the primary data collection system INTRASTAT, while those relating to trade with non-EU countries (EXTRASTAT) are still compiled in conjunction with customs procedures.
