Malta - Foreign trade



Because it depends on external sources for much of its food, fuel, raw materials, and manufactured articles, Malta imports considerably more than it exports.

Most of Malta's commodity exports are electronic microcircuits (62%). Other export commodities include clothes(5.9%), refined petroleum products (4.4%), and toys (4.3%).

In 2000 Malta's imports were distributed among the following categories:

Malta

Consumer goods 11.9%
Food 7.1%
Fuels 7.2%
Industrial supplies 14.6%
Machinery 53.1%
Transportation 6.1%
