Trade deficit swells to EUR 1.150 billion in July

Hungary's trade deficit grew to 1.150 billion euros July, the Central Statistical Office said in a first reading of the data on Thursday.

The gap was the largest in a string of deficits running for 13 consecutive months, an anomaly for Hungary, an export-driven economy where trade surpluses are the norm.

Exports rose by an annual 12.9 percent to 10.813 billion euros in July. Imports climbed by 22.7 percent to 11.962 billion.
