The results of the INE survey on prospects for the export of goods, carried out in June, found that “the companies that export goods expect a nominal decrease of 13.0 percent in their exports in 2020.

Within the companies that showed revisions to exports compared to the first forecast (56.7 percent of respondents), more than half reported that this revision was due entirely to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The INE indicates that these are the results of the survey on prospects for the export of goods, carried out in June, which this year was postponed by one month due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The results correspond to the companies’ second forecast for the expected evolution of goods exports in 2020.

According to the INE, “this edition of the survey included a module on the expected effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on goods exports and on the companies’ production and export strategy”.
