This publication provides a statistical portrait of the European Union in relation to the rest of the world. It presents a broad range of indicators for the EU and the non-EU members of the Group of Twenty (G20).

It is structured into three parts: people and society — population, health, education and training, the labour market, living conditions and digital society; economy and business — economy and finance, international trade, business, and science, technology and the digital society; environment and natural resources — transport, energy, the environment, and agriculture, forestry and fisheries.

The publication complements information found in two of Eurostat’s main publications, Key figures on Europe and the Regional yearbook, as well as the hundreds of articles available from Eurostat’s Statistics Explained web portal. It may be viewed as an introduction to European and international statistics and provides a starting point for those who wish to explore the wide range of data that are freely available from a variety of international organisations and on Eurostat’s website.

The EU in the world is published every second year with annual data. This 2020 edition only describes the situation in the EU and the G20 Member States up to the year 2018 at the most. As a consequence, first findings of any COVID-19 related implications will only be possible in the 2022 edition of The EU in the world, with the full scale of the crisis being revealed in later editions only.
