Abstract: Export of Visegrad countries to China is not only direct but is often realized via third
countries. Sometimes this export is simply reexported, sometimes it enters the
domestic economy as an input in production of exports of the third country and then
we speak about indirect export. Due to data availability, however, it is very difficult to
accurately track these flows for every single product and therefore they must be
estimated from national input-output tables. This paper calculates the reexports and
indirect exports of Visegrad goods led through Germany, as it is the most dominant
export destination of all the Visegrad countries and also the main exporter to China in
the whole EU. The results show that the V4 exports to China in fact more than
suggested by the official statistics. Attributing reexports and indirect exports via
Germany increases total exports by 68%. Measured values also show that 55% of
Visegrad exports to Germany are not intended to cover domestic consumption but for
further exports.
