Importance of exporting
Let us begin by defining what an import is; this is the operation through which certain foreign merchandise is subject to tax regularization and control, to be freely destined to an economic function of use, production or consumption.
On the other hand, the opposite of this term is export, which is the shipment of national merchandise for use or consumption abroad. This function involves a sale beyond a country’s borders, with the exit of goods from a customs territory producing an inflow of foreign exchange.
