According to KSH, a more moderate decline was seen in both directions of euro-denominated external trade in goods than in April–May, due to the easing of the direct negative effects of the COVID-19 epidemic.

In EUR terms, the value of exports decreased by 3.1% and that of imports by 5.7%  compared to the same month of the previous year.

The value of exports amounted to EUR 8.542 bln and that of imports to EUR 7.846 bln.

The share of EU-27 Member States was 78% in exports and 68% in imports.
