Data from official Bulgarian import statistics. 
~ Official import statistics report the receipt of only 457,000 tons in 1970
and 413,000 tons in 1971, but these represent receipts of only a select few
categories of semimanufactures. Because of the incomplete nature of these
data, export statistics of trading partner countries have been used for the
entire steel semimanufacture section. 
 Official import statistics report the receipt of 866,000 tons of all types
of fertilizers in 1970 and 995,000 tons in 1971, quantities which considerably
exceed the totals for the commodities listed below, which are derived from
trading partner export statistics. However, official import statistics do
not break down the total by type. Among the source countries listed in official
import statistics, but not covered by trading partner export data was Tunisia,
which reportedly supplied 121,000 tons in 1970 and 210,000 tons in 1971,
all of which was presumably phosphate rock.
