Abstract: The present report gives an overview on the level and development of the high-technology exports and imports of the four big economic areas and countries of the world: the USA, the EU-25, Japan, and China. In addition to these economic areas and countries also the countries participating in the Group of Eight process (G8) - the USA, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Canada, and Russia - are analysed were it was found informative by the author. For the analyses of the total high-tech trade three different definitions of market shares are used: high-tech trade in world high-tech trade, high-tech trade in world total trade, and high-tech trade in one country¿s total trade. For the definition of the high-tech sectors and goods the current classifications of high-tech sectors and product groups of the OECD were applied. Furthermore, the composition of the high-tech exports and imports of each of the four big economic areas and countries was studied and also the per-capita high-tech exports and imports as well as the share of high-tech exports in the gross domestic product (GDP) were examined.
