    Trade Terms
  • 2. Imports
    Imports are the goods which enter a country from another country. Imports are usually things which a country doesn’t have of their own so they must import them from other places. The climate in Canada is too cold for oranges to grow. So we import them from Florida and other countries. We buy the goods so when you import you lose money. Examples of imports are cars from Japan or Germany, or toys from China.
  • 3. Exports
    Exports are the goods which exit a country to another country. If you have an abundance of some particular resource or other good, they you can export them. For example Canada has a lot of maple syrup so we can export it to countries which don’t have maple trees. We are selling the goods so exporting earns money. Examples of exports are maple syrup, chemicals and others.
