Alexei Sekarev: Medium-term trade flows between EU27 and EaP6

22. June 2014

This paper analyses trade flows between the European Union and its Eastern Partners within the sixyear period 2006-2011. It uniformly uses the IMF Direction of Trade statistics 2006-2010, as presented in the database of DG TRADE, while preliminary country trade data for 2011 are addressed to define the overall trends in that year. The use of uniform statistical data is an essential prerequisite to attain coherency of results and circumvent contradictions in mirror statistics, which in specific cases can become substantial in scope.
