Bulgaria's trade deficit narrowed to BGN 61.4 million in March 2019 from BGN 253.1 million in the same month a year earlier, as exports climbed 5 percent to BGN 4.73 billion, with sales to the EU rising 2.8 percent and those to non-EU countries jumping 10.4 percent. Meanwhile, imports increased at a slower 0.8 percent to BGN 4.79 billion, as a 7.6 percent surge in purchases from non-EU countries was enough to offset a 2 percent fall in imports from the EU.
