16/12/2011: Ireland-Russia bilateral trade, September 2011

Based on yesterday's data for external trade, let's update Irish bilateral trade in goods data with Russia.

Irish exports to Russia totalled €46.9 million in September, up 61.2% yoy, against Irish imports from Russia of €7.8 million, up 14.7% yoy.

Irish trade surplus with Russia stood at €39.1 mln in September, up 75.3% yoy.

Revising annual forecast, I now expect Irish exports to Russia to reach €520 million in 2011, against €373 million in 2010, while Irish imports from Russia to settle at €125 million, down from €159.7 million in 2010. The resulting annual trade surplus will be around €398 million or more than the combined trade deficits in Irish trade with China and India in 2010.

January-through-September period trade surplus data for various non-EU countries expressed in millions of euros are detailed in the table below:

So in terms of trade surplus, Russia was Ireland's 5th most important trading partner.
