Georgia’s external trade decreased by 0.6 percent and reached $5.96 billion in January-June 2019, says the National Statistics Office of Georgia (Geostat).

The value of Georgian exports increased by 11.5 percent to $1.77 billion, while the value of imports decreased by 4.9 percent to $4.19 billion with respect to 2018, said Geostat.
