The UK had a total trade deficit of £32 billion with the EU27 in 2006. This was made up of a trade in goods deficit of £32 billion and a trade in services deficit of just £6 million. The UK's total trade deficit with the rest of the world was £48 billion in 2006. This was made up of a trade in goods deficit of £78 billion and a trade in services surplus of about £29 billion.
The UK had a total trade deficit of £2.2 billion (1974 prices) with the EEC in 1974 (the first year after joining in 1973). This is based on IMF data, which do not give a breakdown between goods and services, or allow for the figure to be expressed in the value of the pound in 2007. This is 33 per cent. of the total trade deficit the UK had with the entire world, which was £6.7 billion.
