EXPORT THREE BILLION MORE. SIGNS OF RECOVERY EVEN FROM IMPORT
The third consecutive month of growth for exports, in particular from the race pushed the EU countries but also supported by a rise of more than six points in Europe. The overall budget, an annual growth of 9%, is determined in part by the presence of a working day. Eliminating the which-says Istat-the balance remains active for more than five percentage points.
For Europe the annual growth was 6.4%, with the best performance for United Kingdom and Spain, while Germany remains almost to the pole, up by just over a point and still in the red in the first quarter.
Already known data outside the EU, with a race (+12.3%) and choral excludes only Russia and Japan and a shot to the u.s. (from the mini also pushed euro) of 36%. In macro terms-only the energy sector is in red, the rest only plus signs, in some cases (capital and consumer goods durable) in double figures.
Resounding, thanks mainly to direct sales to the United States, the car, up 51% in the month, more than 33 points between January and April. In manufacturing are positive but all sectors: the worst result is for base metals, however, growth of 3% annually.
With the April, three billion of additional exports in absolute terms, the first quarter is positive of 4.6%, more than double performance at the given closing of 2014. Choral in April shot also for imports, another sign of recovery in domestic demand, an increase of 9.3% nearly 13% excluding energy calculation, even downhill.
The trade balance is thus able to improve again, though at rates much lower than in the past: in April, the surplus of 3.7 billion, 200 million more than the same period in 2014.
