Slight delay in the release by the source. The thing to take note here is that both exports and imports showed a notable bounce after the January hit, which was likely impacted by the Brexit crossover at the time.
Exports grew by 9.9% while imports moved up by 8.8%, with notable improvements seen in trade conditions with EU countries in February.
