Abstract: The study uses network measures and visualisation to show alternative ways of exploring international trade and its structure. We specifically focus on trade networks in the largest export categories of the Czech Republic. Our results show the rising importance of the Czech Republic in the selected categories as measured by the trade weighted degree centrality. However, in several categories, this is not complemented by a similar increase in the number of trade partners. This lack of diversification could be a possible risk for Czech trade. While the results in categories related to electronics and information technologies showed increasing importance of China, categories connected to car manufacturing remain dominated by Germany and the United States.
