Which information can I find here?

Statistics on international trade in services record services transactions between residents and non-residents.

These statistics distinguish between transactions among EU Member States (intra-EU transactions) and transactions of EU Member States with non-member countries (extra-EU transactions). For a given country (or geographical area) the total trade in services includes international transactions with all countries of the world and equals the sum of intra-EU and extra-EU transactions.

International trade in services statistics provide monetary values by type of service and by partner country.
