Value added of factoryless production has been recorded as goods exports

A change has been made in the time series of goods and services for 2006 to 2013. Value added of factoryless production that belonged to exports of manufacturing services has been included in goods exports. As a result of this change, the level of service exports decreases and that of goods exports increases in 2006 to 2013. The revision does not change the combined value of goods and services exports. Starting from the statistical reference year 2014, this change has already been made in March 2017.

As a result of the change, the time series of goods and services are comparable starting from 2006.

The corresponding change will be made in national accounts in July.
