The 2013 International Trade Statistics Yearbook, Volume I provides an overview of the international trade merchandise trade in 2013 and detailed information on the trade performance for numerous countries up to 2013. Overall, data for a total of 175 countries (or areas) are shown with the 2013 data on imports and exports by commodity and trading partner provided for approximately 90 countries (or areas), representing more than 70% of world trade of 2013. The goal is to provide a more analytical and condensed view of trade by using graphs, overview tables and descriptive text.




In 2013, the value of merchandise exports of Mexico increased slightly by 2.6 percent to reach 380.1 bln US$, while its merchandise imports increased slightly by 2.8 percent to reach 381.2 bln US$ (see graph 1, table 2 and table 3). Both export and import to the United States increased in 2013, but at rates far below average growth rates in recent years. Due to the high share of trade with the United States, weak economic growth and slow economic recovery in the United States have a great impact on Mexico’s trade performance. The merchandise trade balance recorded a relatively small deficit of 1.1 bln US$ (see graph 1). The largest merchandise trade balance was with MDG Developed North America at 112.7 bln US$ (see graph 4). Merchandise exports in Mexico were highly concentrated amongst partners; imports were also highly concentrated. The top 2 partners accounted for 80 percent or more of exports and 7 partners accounted for 80 percent or more of imports (see graph 5). In 2012, the value of exports of services of Mexico increased slightly by 3.6 percent, reaching 16.1 bln US$, while its imports of services increased slightly by 0.9 percent and reached 30.5 bln US$ (see graph 2). There was a large trade in services deficit of 14.3 bln US$, despite a small reduction compared with 2012.
