Cross border movements of goods – methodology. There are two main approaches to record commodity transactions in international trade. The first one former is based on the principle of movement of goods across the borders, which corresponds to traditional foreign trade statistics. Export from the Czech Republic (CR) according to this approach is understood as physical crossing of goods across Czech borders abroad. Import is reversely the moment when the goods cross the border of the Czech Republic from abroad. To the value of export and import are therefore added also non-resident´s transactions carried out on the Czech territory.
