Note         In absence of comprehensive trade data, total exports are based on balance of payments data (from Central Bank, Statistical
             Bulletin, various issues). The percentage breakdown by products is calculated from "mirror statistics", i.e. imports of partner
             countries from the UAE (taken from UNSD, Comtrade database).
