Trade by enterprise ownership

Foreign-owned firms account for a large share of overall exports and imports compared to domestically owned firms. In the Czech Republic, Hungary and the Slovak Republic, foreign-owned exporters provide more than 80% of the total value of exports and imports, but represent only around 20% of the trading firms; this pattern is even more pronounced in Italy, Portugal and Spain where less than 5% of foreign-owned firms account for disproportionately large shares of imports and exports.
