Visible imports and exports
 

 

Goods actually shipped or otherwise sold – as opposed to invisible exports or imports, which are services earning or costing foreign exchange, shipping, insurance, etc. The United Kingdom has thrived for many years on invisible earnings and very rarely has a favourable balance on visible trade.
