Dear Lady Kennedy,
As National Statistician and Chief Executive of the UK Statistics Authority, I am responding to your Parliamentary Question asking what five African countries have the largest total value of trade with the UK (HL15101).
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) publishes monthly ‘All countries statistics’. Services data for 2021 Q1 are not currently available at a geographical level but will be published in August 2021. Tables 1 and 2 provide details of UK Trade in Goods imports and exports for the top five African countries. Please note that data are in current prices and, as such, include the effect of inflation.
