World’s largest searchable trade database adds import-export data from Africa’s top economy
Miami – March 20, 2012 – Datamyne, a leading provider of international market intelligence, announced the latest expansion of its database: import-export trade records of South Africa.
The most advanced, broad-based and productive economy in Africa, South Africa is the continent’s sole G20 member and the newest member of the BRICs club.
The South African data shows total US trade in goods with South Africa in 2011 was US$16.4 billion. US exports to South Africa totaled US$8.1 billion last year, making the US the third-ranked source for South African imports. US imports from South Africa were valued at US$8.3 billion.
The newly available data on South Africa is based on census statistics on exports and imports starting in 2011. It will be updated with monthly trade records approximately 50 days after the month’s end.
Datamyne’s database is the largest of its kind – a searchable store of information about cross-border commerce collected from bills of lading, manifests and customs declarations – and is used by companies and institutions to research markets in some 50 countries in the Americas, Europe, Asia – and, now, Africa.
Datamyne is offering complimentary online demonstrations of its new trade data resource. To schedule a demonstration go to www.datamyne.com/demo_request.html.
Founded in 1992 with the aim of clearly and accurately documenting import-export transactions in the Americas, Datamyne has since claimed a top-ranked position in the highly competitive U.S. market for trade data.
Datamyne today offers the best value in business intelligence: easy access, with expert support, at an affordable price, to the world’s largest searchable trade database. Built and maintained by an international team, Datamyne covers the cross-border commerce of some 50 countries on 5 continents.
