By Messenger Staff
Friday, June 7According to the National Statistics Office of Georgia, there were some positive figures in the first quarter of 2013. Exports in Georgia increased by 8% during the period, whereas imports decreased by the same percentage, 8%. The largest imports are still oil and oil products followed by automobiles. The largest exports are the re-export of cars, followed by the ferroalloy, and fertilizers. The analysts suggest that the re-export of cars is the main Georgian export, although this does not contribute much to the Georgian economy as the number of people involved in the business has remained unchanged. Regarding the decrease of imports, this is explained by the slow-down in the construction sector after the Parliamentary Election and before the upcoming Presidential Election.
