Greek Exports lead the way

Greek exports continue to support the countrys economy with total exports in the first half of 2017 almost a fifth higher than they were a year ago. According to official data, Greek exports rose 18.2% to 14.2 billion euro in the first six months of the year, compared with 12 billion euro last year.

The increase has been broad based, with Greek exports for food, raw materials, minerals and refined petroleum products, chemicals and other industrial goods all rising.

Fellow European Union members remain Greece biggest export market, accounting for just over half of the countrys exports.

But neighboring countries in the Middle East and North Africa are among the fastest growing, and combined accounting for roughly a sixth of Greek exports.

Greek wine exports to Japan are up 66% in 2017, from 482,000 euro in 2016, slated to pass 1,000,000 euro in 2018.
