The Geography of UK International Trade
AbstractThis paper examines how the geography of UK international trade has changed since the UK¿s accession tothe European Economic Community using a newly constructed data set that gives a detailed breakdown ofthe UK¿s imports and exports by both port of entry and exit and commodity. Our results suggest thatbetween 1970 and 1992 overall imports and exports re-orientated in favour of ports located nearer to thecontinent. The vast majority of individual commodities also saw a similar re-orientation.
