Re-exported products are at least doubly counted in world trade figures. This international re-exports trend contributes to the fact that world trade volume is growing faster than the volume of world export production. Besides, there are some serious implications for the indicators of countries’ exports performances. If one doesn’t take account of the implications of the international reexports trend, the relevant export market growth for Dutch manufactures as well as the loss of market share of Dutch industrialists are overestimated.
