Despite this, investors were disappointed by the reduction of exports in the country by 12.9% versus decline of 8.0% in the previous month. The fall of exports was recorded for 4 consecutive month. The greatest impact has been a reduction of supplies to China by 17.5%, which is the second largest US trading partner.
