They really should've succeeded in opening up Argentina. They almost had the license plate manufacturing market. In more ways than one.

Pretty easy but I was also surprised not to see India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka or Indonesia on here. Tiny Singapore beats them all.

Four years later... it didn't really change much at all. Except that the trade deficit with China yawns ever wider.

It wouldn't have changed in 2020 as the transitional agreement meant that all the former rules continued to apply. The 2021 figures will be more significant.

I suspect that because Singapore is a regional shipping/trading/commercial hub many British goods exported to Singapore ultimately do end up in India just via Singapore. Those goods statistically then count as exports from Singapore to India even though they are only the intermediary.

It's striking that Japan's there for exports but not imports. Presumably that would have been very different 20 years ago.

Japan has very little natural resources, so no materials, and pretty much no food. Technology would be the main import I suppose, but that's definitely not more than any other countries.
