Bishop of St Albans asks about trade with Somalia

The Bishop of St Albans received the following written answer on 7th February 2023:

The Lord Bishop of St Albans asked His Majesty’s Government what is the value of UK direct (1) imports, and (2) exports, to Somalia.

Baroness Penn (Con): HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) is responsible for the collection and publication of data on imports and exports of goods to and from the UK. HMRC releases this information monthly, as a National Statistic called the Overseas Trade in Goods Statistics (OTS), which is available via their dedicated website. From this website, it is possible to build your own data tables based upon bespoke search criteria.

The value of UK imports and exports, where Somalia has been declared as the country of dispatch (for UK imports) or country of destination (for UK exports) is as follows

• Data for 2022 is aligned with the most recently published data, e.g. up to and including November 2022
• 2022 is an open year and is therefore provisional and is subject to change
• Values are defined as statistical value.
