Chart of the day: Largest German trade partners
Since I did the numbers for the US, I thought I would do the numbers for Germany too. Below are the bilateral trade figures for Germany in 2010, first ranked by deficit with country and then by surplus with country. Germany has a deficit with 73 countries and a surplus with 147 countries. The largest deficit by far is with China at $23 billion, followed by Norway, Ireland and Japan. The largest surpluses are with France, the UK, the US and Austria. In total Germany had a trade surplus of $154.9 billion in 2010.
