After an increase of 40% was recorded in the first quarter, in the second quarter the total value of Belarusian furniture exports to EU countries almost doubled vis à vis the preceding year to US$99.1m. According to Belstat, furniture at a value of US$34.8m was exported to Germany (+75%), currently the most important EU trading partner ahead of Poland. Deliveries to Poland more than doubled to US$30.5m. Statistics for the CIS states show an increase of 76% to US$114.5m. In this connection, deliveries to Russia rose by almost two-thirds to US$93.7m.

In the first half-year, total Belarusian furniture exports - at a value of US$422.2m - exceeded the previous year’s figure by 57%.
