Exports, January-September 2015
Exports of merchandise to September reached 186,261.1 million euro, with an increase of 4.4% year-on-year (Ministry of the Economy). Imports also increased, 3.9%, to 204,903.1 million euro, thus confirming the recovery of internal demand.
The trade deficit was reduced by 1.1% (to 18,642 million euro). The non-energy balance had a surplus of 2,034.1 million euro (vs. 10,704 million the year before), and the energy deficit dropped 30.1%, principally because of the decline in prices.
