Exports hit record €13.7bn in January as reliance on UK declines
The value of Irish goods exports hit a record €13.7 billion in January while the UK accounted for less than 10 per cent of Irish exports for the first time, the latest trade figures show.

The record performance comes amid signs of a global slowdown in trade, threats from Brexit and faltering US-China trade relations.

The figures show seasonally adjusted goods exports grew by 6 per cent to €13.7 billion in January while imports fell by 25 per cent to €6.5 billion. This resulted in a record trade surplus of €7.2 billion, 72 per cent up on the previous month.
