Yearly Imports and Exports
Answer: The graph shows yearly imports and exports of a country in billion dollars. At a glance, it shows that both imports and exports of the country have increased significantly over time. In 2010 the exports and imports respectively were 12.45 billion dollars and 15.00 billion dollars. Within a span of four years’ time, that is in 2014, they rose to 23.45 billion dollars and 32.15 billion dollars respectively. However, from the graph, it is noticeable that from 2010 to 2014 the exports and imports of the country have increased except in 2013. A decrease occurs in this year. From the graph, it is also clear that the country’s import expenditure is much higher than that of its export. But a positive aspect is that over time the country’s import ability increases along with its increase in exports. If calculated separately we find that in 2011, the increased export amount is 0.62 billion dollars and in 2012 it is 3.95 billion dollars. In 2013 the export has a decrease of 2.68 billion dollars. But in 2014 it has again an increase of 9.11 billion dollars than the previous year. Therefore, the highest increase occurs in the year 2014. Similarly, as regards import, we notice the increase of 3.40 billion dollars in 2011; the increase of 3.85 billion dollars in 2012, but a decrease of 2.20 billion dollars in 2013 and 12.10 billion dollars increase in 2014. Thus the highest increase occurs in 2014. This way the graph shows a clear picture of the amount of import and export of a country over a period of four years from 2010 to 2014.
