A report in Ta Nea reveals that during the first half of the 2016, the value of exports dropped to 11.97 billion euros, compared to 13.02 billion euros during the same period in 2015, amounting to an 8.6% drop

Indicatively, the value of exports in June 2016 was estimated to be 2.1 billion euros 6.6% down compared to 2015, when it was 2.24 billion euros. Excluding oil products the drop is about 4.5%.

Imports however have also taken a hit, dropping by 3.5% to 22.3 billion euros during the first half of the year. As a result, the trade deficit increased by 2.8% to 9.53 billion euros.
