Year-on-year growth in exports and imports accelerated.
"Foreign trade in goods continued to grow in April, this time by the highest growth rates since the beginning of the year. Above all, trading in machinery and transport equipment, where exports in all subgroups of goods were successful, had the positive effect on its performance. Exports of passenger cars have also performed well despite the long-standing downturn in the European automotive markets. The total volumes of exported and imported goods were higher in April than a year ago and the trade surplus also increased," said Vladimír Bärtl, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade for the European Union and Foreign Trade.
