The value added of factoryless goods production included in the statistics as goods exports starting from the statistical reference year 2014

The value added of factoryless goods production previously included in exports of manufacturing services has been included in the statistics as goods exports starting from the statistical reference year 2014. The change was made in March 2017. A corresponding change to earlier years will be made in connection with the next time series correction. As a result of the change, the level of service exports before 2014 falls and the level of goods exports rises. The correction will not change the combined value of exports of goods and services.
