NETHERLANDS FRENCH EXPORTS TO THE NETHERLANDS In 2016, 27,750 companies exported to the Netherlands from France. The value of their exports was €16.1 billion (3.6% of all French exports). Despite 1.7% growth in the Dutch market, French exports to the Netherlands fell sharply in 2016 (-8%). The Netherlands was France’s seventh largest customer in 2016, ahead of China, receiving six percent of French exports to European Union countries. France’s export market share in the Netherlands was 3.7% in 2015, similar to its share in global goods exports (3.1%). 1 Dutch statistics ranked France as the Netherlands’ sixth largest supplier in 2015 (up one place from 7th in 2014, when it finished after Russia). [Fig. 1] SECTOR-BY-SECTOR BREAKDOWN OF FRENCH EXPORTS TO THE NETHERLANDS In 2016, three sectors accounted for more than half of French exports to the Netherlands: capital goods (25%), chemicals and perfumes (17%), and food (15%). The slump in exports to the Netherlands in 2016 can be attributed to declining sales of transport equipment (-31%) and chemicals (-12%). Falling oil prices also took their toll, with exports of petroleum products, the fourth largest source of French exports to the Netherlands, down 35%. Conversely, after two years of dwindling sales, exports of metal products were on the rise again in 2016 (+6.5%), while a buoyant textiles and clothing sector also boosted France’s export performance. The Netherlands stood out as the leading export destination for the refined petroleum products sector, which sold 15% of its exports to Dutch customers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
