Israel: Merchandise exports rise at a faster pace in April

Merchandise exports soared 40.5% annually in April (March: +12.6% year-on-year). April’s reading marked the strongest outturn since April 2010, and was likely supported by the lifting of restrictions abroad and global stimulus measures.

Lastly, the trend deteriorated, with the 12-month trailing merchandise trade balance recording a USD 23.6 billion deficit in April, compared to the USD 22.4 billion deficit in March.
