Exporting guide to Suriname
Growing import market
Suriname is expected to see a growth in imports of 10.7% in 2019 and 12.5% the following year, with consistent growth expected to follow (IMF, 2019). This highlights a growing demand for imported goods in Suriname, which UK businesses could benefit from.
Demand for goods and services
In the year to June 2019, the top goods exported from the UK to Suriname were beverages, dyeing, tanning and colouring materials, industrial machinery, mechanical power generators and electrical goods (ONS, 2019). In terms of services, the top services imported by Suriname from the world were business services, travel, transport, construction and maintenance and repair services (ITC Trade Map, 2019). Therefore, if you operate in any of these industries, Suriname could be a good market for you.
