Italy: Int'l trade advances in February month-to-month
( MENAFN ) On Friday, Apr. 16 Italy's National Institute of Statistics (ISTAT) said in a report that the country's imports and exports advanced during February in comparison with the prior month.
With regard to value, sales overseas expanded by 0.3 percent, principally with the help of a rise in exports of non-durable consumer commodities, and imports by 1.4 percent, steered by energy products and, again, by non-durable consumer commodities.
The figures demonstrated that the yearly trend was negative for both flows, with a 4.4 percent decline in exports and a 1.6 percent decline in imports during February against the very month last year.
ISTAT stated in its report: "on the annual basis, the countries contributing most to the export decline are the United States (-21.1 percent), the OPEC countries (-20.2 percent), France (-5.8 percent) and Great Britain (-12.5 percent)."
