Slovenia's merchandise trade keeps increasing

Ljubljana, 09 January (STA) - Slovenia exported EUR 2.576bn worth of goods in November, an increase of 16.2% from the same month a year ago, while imports rose by 14.8% to peak at EUR 2.578bn and create a trade deficit of EUR 2.5m, fresh statistics show.
