Greek exports down 12.2% in November


Greek exports fell 12.2% in November, representing a decline of 7.5% in the 11 months from January to November 2023, but their value exceeded 47 billion euros, recording the second-highest level in history.

The improvement in export performance of food, oils and fat, alcohol and tobacco partly offset a decline in the exports of industrial products.

The value of exports totalled 4.292 billion euros in November, down 12.2% from November 2022, while imports totalled 6.953 billion, down 19.3% over the same period. Exports excluding oil products were down 10%, while imports fell 3.5% in November.

The trade deficit rose 7.3% to 2.166 billion.
