Trade balance

It is a segment of the national economic accounting. The trade balance data records the amount of imports and exports of goods to and from a country.
In import and export activity, the trade balance is the difference between imports and exports in terms of the reference currency and determines the exchange rate of the respective currencies.
The trade balance can be in surplus, when the value of exports exceeds that of imports, generating incoming monetary capital, or in deficit, when the value of imports exceeds the value of exports, with consequent outflow of monetary capital from the state.
It is a fundamental indicator of the economic solidity and wealth of a country.
