  • Non-seasonally adjusted trade balance €23.1 billion
  • Prior €20.7 billion
The trade surplus improved as exports grew by 0.9% on the month while imports fell by 0.7% on the month. However, the data here acts as more of an accompaniment to the overall GDP report release at the same time so it isn’t really a key release.
