German exports to Russia likely to drop 5 pct

Tags: , ,


German exports to Russia are likely to fall 5 percent this year. In 2015 they fell by about 30%, because of sanctions over the Ukraine conflict and low oil prices, the head of foreign trade at Germany’s DIHK Chambers of Commerce said.

“Political tensions are taking their toll on the economy,” Volker Treier said. That, combined with low oil prices, has almost halved German exports to Russia in the last two years to a value of around 21 billion euros ($23.39 billion) now, he said.

Germany’s engineering, automobile and food exports have been hit particularly hard, he said. ($1 = 0.8979 euros)
