IMF Direction of Trade Statistics, 1980 -

A Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is assigned to each international database every time there is an update to the data. The new DOI will resolve to this page containing a log of previous editions since the allocation of its first DOI. The DOI system supports resource discovery and simplifies citation for users of data collections. Data producers benefit directly through increased visibility of their work.

Abstract:

The IMF DOTS database contains data on the value of merchandise exports and imports between each country and all its trading partners.  Total bilateral and multilateral exports and imports are aggregated at national or regional group level. For each reporting country or group, all the trading partners are listed. The corresponding monetary values of total imports and total exports are then provided as time series for each   country/trading partner pair. All exports are valued free on board   (f.o.b.). Imports are usually reported cost including insurance and   freight (c.i.f.), although a small number of countries report imports f.o.b.
