Nordic Exports of Goods and Exporting Enterprises

This report analyses the exports of goods from the Nordic countries and the exporting enterprises in the period 2008 to 2012. The report addresses issues such as: What are the strongholds of the Nordic countries, both in terms of the type of goods that are exported and in terms of geographical markets? How are the Nordic countries performing on the main emerging markets – are they gaining ground compared to other exporters? How important are the small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) compared to the larger enterprises in the export of goods of each of the Nordic countries? And how have SMEs and large enterprises coped with the crisis, both in terms of domestic employment and in terms of export market performance? A new database consisting of business and international trade data linked at enterprise level was constructed in each of the Nordic countries specifically for this analysis. The project was carried out by the five Nordic national statistical institutes in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. The project was coordinated by Statistics Denmark.
