Romania: Retail sales growth picks up in December

February 3, 2014

In December, retail sales (excluding the sale of motor vehicles and motorcycles) expanded 6.7% over the same month of the previous year according to the National Institute of Statistics (INSSE). The expansion marks a significant improvement over the 2.1% increase observed in November. According to INSSE, the improvement was mainly the result of an increase in sales of food, beverages and tobacco as well as non-food products.

Monthly data confirms the improvement observed in the annual data. Retail sales rose 7.20% over the previous month in December, which marks a significant improvement over the 2.00% decrease recorded in November.
