Poland's Economy Ministry expects the growth of its foreign trade value to be lower in 2013 than it was in 2012. In 2012, Poland's export value rose by 4.2 percent year-on-year to €145.9 billion and imports rose by 0.9 percent to €151.5 billion.
In December, exports fell by 0.2 percent to €10.6 billion and imports rose by 0.4 percent to €11.9 billion. The December slowdown was caused both by seasonal factors and by a general slowdown in the global economy, the ministry said.
