    The U.S. diary export council is a very good source for the second claim, I think we can draft an email and send them asking for more details about the current diary taxation system: https://www.usdec.org

      After a brief look, it looks like either figure is correct depending on whether or not re-exported good are included.

      The benefits of re-exporting (goods manufactured elsewhere) are not as great as the benefits of exporting original goods (goods manufactured in Canada).

      I’d say the $17.5bn figure is the most important one, in this situation.

      Although, the value of re-exporting shouldn’t be disregarded. Surely, it has been of great benefit to the Netherlands.
