According to preliminary data from the State Statistics Bureau, both imports and exports registered growth last year. Croatian exports in the first eleven months of 2017 were valued at roughly 99 billion Kuna, or approximately 13.2 billion Euros. This is up by 3.5 percent from the same period in the previous year. At the same time imports in 2017 were valued at 162 billion Kuna, or roughly 21.6 billion Euros, which is up by 7.7 percent from 2016.

This comes on the heels of a release from the bureau on Tuesday, which contained its latest data on retail sales. According to the bureau, retail sales rose by 5.8% on an annual basis in November of 2017. Growth of 2.1% was recorded when compared to the previous months.

Retail sales in Croatia have been on a growth trend since September of 2014, or 51 consecutive months now.
