Slovenian goods are racing across markets abroad and their doing impressively well as, according to data published by the country’s Statistics Office, the 724m-euro trade surplus was the second highest since 2000.
While bloc states are Slovenia’s best trade buddies, the country “has recorded a surplus in trade with non-EU members over the past few years. Last year it stood at EUR 1.1bn; the country exported EUR 6.6bn worth of goods and imported EUR 5.5bn worth of goods from the rest of the world”, sloveniatimes.com reads.
In 2017, local businesses exported 28.25bn-euro worth of goods, up 13.1% over 2016, while imports cost Slovenia 27.5bn euros, that is translated into an increase of 14.2%, as statistics have shown.
Export-to-import ratio stood at 102.6%, with the country recording external surplus since 2014. The total Slovenian trade surplus mentioned above, “was the second highest since 2000; the figure was only eclipsed in 2016.”…/IBNA
