“Despite the challenges of the international environment, Greek exporters managed to secure high growth rates for the fourth straight month,” said the Panhellenic Exporters Association.
Figures released by the Hellenic Statistical Authority earlier Thursday showed that exports in April rose 11.6 percent to 2.58 billion euros, versus 2.32 billion euros a year earlier. At the same time, Greece’s trade deficit further narrowed to 1.74 billion euros from 1.82 billion in the same month last year.
The rising trend looks to continue in coming months, despite problems in the domestic market, such as high taxes and poor financing, added the exporters group.
