Even the exchange of non-energy goods contributes to the negative balance of trade balance, rising from 456 million in January 2010 to less than 169 million in January 2011. Capital goods drive the growth trend in exports of non-energy products (+41.9%) achieving a surplus of over 2.1 billion. For intermediates there is a trend growth in imports (+73%) considerably larger than exports (+31%) and a trade deficit of almost 1.9 billion euro.
