Industry and exports from Greece have shown significant resilience during the Covid-19 crisis.
Industrial production gradually recovered after a 10 pct drop recorded in April. Industrial performance was better compared with that of the Eurozone.
Greek exports began improving from June, following a 30 pct fall recorded in April and May. In July, exports fell by 10.1 pct compared with the same month last year, but excluding fuel, exports grew 9.2 pct from the previous month, evidence of a dynamic trend.
Imports fell more than this during the pandemic crisis so the country’s trade deficit fell.
