Slovenia’s exports up 4.5% in the first half of the year
Slovenia’s merchandise exports rose 4.5% year-on-year in the January-June period, with imports expanding by 1.8% in the same period, the Statistics Office said in a preliminary release on Tuesday.
The trade surplus was driven by higher exports to and lower imports from non-EU countries. Nevertheless, the EU remains the linchpin of Slovenian trade, accounting for over three-quarters of total exports and over 80% of imports. Italy and Germany are the main export markets, according to the statisticians.
