The Ministry released data on the sidelines of an EU ministers meeting in Paris to review the fallout from Britain's departure from the bloc a year ago.

EU exports to Britain fell 15% while EU imports from Britain fell 30% in the first 10 months of last year. The COVID-19 pandemic added to the negative effect on bilateral trade. But the EU's trade overall rose during the reviewed period, according to data from the Eurostat agency.
