LONDON (ICIS)--Ukraine's chemical exports fell by 10% year on year in June as the country's year-long recession continued, Raiffeisen Bank Aval said on Tuesday.
Looking at the first half of this year, Ukraine's chemical exports fell by 3% year on year, the Kiev-based bank said.
Ukraine is suffering chronically weak external demand and a lack of domestic economic stimulus that has hit many of its major industries, the bank added.
“The recessionary global environment has hit hard the performance of export-oriented industries such as metallurgy, machine building and chemical production,” it said.
