It is difficult to estimate figures for trade values involving personal data specifically, and the closest proxy we have is for data-enabled trade. We estimate that the value of data-enabled services trade with Japan is £12.9 billion, £7.0 billion of which is exports and £5.9 billion in imports. These values are derived from the Office of National Statistics 2019 trade figures.
