Methodology 2010 Definition:

Foreign trade indices provide an overall measure of unit value and volume changes of exported and imported goods.

Value index:

The index measures changes of imports and exports value by base year value.

Terms of trade index
Terms of trade is the ratio of export unit value index to import unit value index.

If the terms of trade index number increases, it is described as a favorable movement (a unit of exports will buy more imports).

If the terms of trade index number decreases, it is described as a worsening or deterioration of the terms of trade (a unit of exports will buy fewer imports).
