After Another Record Week Brazilian Exports Reach US$ 32 Bi in 2006

    Brazilian exports added up to US$ 2.833 billion in the first week of April, against imports worth US$ 1.537 billion. The result was a record surplus of US$ 1.296 billion in the trade balance in only five working days, with a daily average of US$ 259.2 million.

    With this, the year’s surplus increased to US$ 10.642 billion, 23.76% more than that registered in the same period last year. Since January, the country has exported the equivalent to US$ 32.22 billion and imported products and services in the total value of US$ 21.58 billion.

    The figures for last week’s trade balance were released this Monday, April 10, by the Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade.

    They show that, in spite of the increase in the trade surplus, proportionally imports increased more than exports this year in relation to 2005. While Brazilian sales increased by 28.7%, purchases increased by 31.3%.
