21 February, 15:20

    (ANSAmed) - MADRID, FEBRUARY 21 - Spanish trade deficit in 2013 dropped by almost half, or 48.1%, as exports added 5.2% and imports fell by 1.3% over the previous year, the ministry of economics made known Friday.

    The trade deficit dropped by 15.955 million euros, with exports reaching a record 234.240 million euros, ministry data showed.

    Imports fell by 2.8% in 2012, more than in 2013. This was due to a pickup in internal demand last year, analysts said.

    December exports added 2.9% and imports rose by 5.6% when compared to the same month in 2012. (ANSAmed).
