Wednesday, December 1, 2010


El Salvador’s trade deficit in the first 10 months of the year came to $3.3 billion, $560 million more than in the same period of last year.

Exports came to $3.7 billion, a 16.1 percent year-on-year increase, while imports came to $7.04 billion, an 18 percent increase.
 
The increase in exports was credited mainly to sales of non-traditional products, shrimp and the free zones.
