Floridata said overall exports increased in September by almost one per cent during the month, but exports to the UK dropped by seven per cent, while France consumed four per cent fewer products. Germany showed average growth in imports from Holland.
Positive results for exports were noted in smaller countries like Belgium, Poland and Austria. Russia is falling further behind – the decline in export to that country “seems neverending”. For cut flowers, the export value to the USA is now larger than to Russia. In cumulative terms, the export value is three per cent up on last year.
The export figures for September from Floridata are the latest export figures available.
