SUMMARY REPORT ne 1964 FOR RELEASE
FT 930-E J u August 5, 1964


EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY


The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, announced
today that the decrease in United States exports of domestic
merchandise from $2,225.5 million in May to $2,067.5 million in
June1, a decrease of about seven percent, resulted from de-
creases in exports of all of the economic classes of commodities.
The June 1964 domestic merchandise export total was about 12
percent higher than the June 1963 total of $1,840.8 million.
These figures include data on Department of Defense Military
Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments.

With Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid shipments excluded,
June exports of domestic merchandise were valued at $1,999.5
million, about eight percent less than the May total of $2,173.2
million and about 14 percent higher than the June 1963 total of
$1,754.4 million.

The decrease in exports of finished manufactures, from $1,295.2
million in May to $1,210.6 million in June, reflected decreases
in most of the individual commodities included in this economic
class, the primary ones being automobile parts for assembly and

figures on total exports excluding Military Assistance Program--Grant-Aid
shipments. Seasonally adjusted data are not available on a comnodity
basis.


replacement, from $85.1 to $70.2 million; construction, excava-
tion, mining, oil field, and related machinery, from $100.5 to
$86.6 million; and aircraft, parts and accessories, from $96.3
to $90.2 million. Partly counteracting the general decline
were increases in railway transportation equipment, from $6.9
to $13.4 million; passenger cars, from $22.7 to $28.2 million;
and lubricating oil, from $15.5 to $19.5 million. Exports of
crude foodstuffs, fell from $233.1 to $182.1 million, owing
chiefly to a substantial drop in exports of wheat, from $131.3
to $98.2 million and to declines in exports of corn, from $47.6
to $37.8 million, and "other grains," (except wheat and corn)
from $24.1 to $15.0 million. The decline in exports of manu-
factured foodstuffs, from $144.8 to $125.9 million, was largely
attributed to a falling off in exports of manufactured foodstuffs
exported for relief or charity, from $16.2 to $9.7 million; dairy
products, from $21.1 to $15.8 million; and wheat flour, from
$12.7 to $8.7 million. Exports of semimanufactures decreased
from $333.3 to $330.9 million. The slight decline in exports of
crude materials, from $219.1 to $217.9 million, was primarily
due to decreases in exports of oilseeds, from $41.1 to $35.2
million, and inedible animal and fish oils and greases, from
$20.1 to $15.4 million, which were partly offset by a rise in
exports of tobacco, from $23.1 to $30.3 million.
