Germany's exports declined for the second month in a row, as the global demand continued to be damped by high inflation and supply chain disruptions, and the biggest euro area economy is near recession. Yet, the trade surplus increased notably due to the sharp decrease in imports. Shipments logged a monthly drop of 0.6%, following September's 0.7% decrease, Destatis reported. The pace of decline was double the expected 0.3% fall. At the same time, the monthly reduction in imports deepened to 3.7% from 2.2%. This was also bigger than economists' forecast for a 0.4% fall. As a result, the trade balance closed in October with a surplus of EUR 6.9 billion, higher than EUR 2.8 billion in September. In the same month last year, the surplus was EUR 12.2 billion. Exports to the Eurozone countries dropped by 2.9%, and imports from the currency bloc decreased by 5.2%. Most German exports went to the United States in October.
Nonetheless, exports decreased by 3.9%, but imports from the U.S. climbed by 2.7%. Meanwhile, shipments to China remained unchanged, and imports from the Asian country gained 0.8%. Elsewhere, a survey among German exporters conducted by the ifo Institute showed an improvement in their expectations. Currently, positive and negative assessments are roughly balanced. 12/02/2022 - 07:24:00 (RTTNews)
