A return of Greek exports to positive growth rates in November 2016, a month during which the oil product sector saw its pressures easing further, allowing the economy to capitalize on a dynamism recorded by most export sectors in the last few months, the Panhellenic Exporters Association said in a report.

In an analysis of premiminary data released by Hellenic Statistical Authority on the country’s merchandise trade, the Association said the November figures allowed the country to move towards breaking another historic record for the second successive year (excluding oil products).

The analysis showed that an increase in exports in November reflected a 10.7 pct increase in exports to EU countries despite a 2.3 pct decline in exports to third countries. Excluding oil products, exports to the EU grew 13.8 pct in November, while exports to third countries rose 6.4 pct.
