Metals comprise 55.5% of Urals’ export

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, January 25, 2011. Ural Customs goods turnover involving the countries of the CIS dropped by 2.9% last year compared with a year earlier, that is, down to $4.7bn. On the other hand, the turnover of goods delivered to and from the far abroad rose by 18.6%, up to $18.4bn, Ural Customs Administration’s press officer reports.

The decrease in the goods turnover involving the countries of the CIS had to do with the lowered export volumes to Kazakhstan (these went down by 43.2%) and import volumes from Kazakhstan (these declined by 20.1%), even though the amount of goods exported to Ukraine and Uzbekistan and imported from Ukraine rose by 65.6%, 62%, and 57.5%, respectively.

The rising turnover figures involving the far abroad had to do with the growing amount of goods exported to Belgium, Finland, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Turkey, and the United States, and the growing amount of goods imported from China and France.
