The country’s exports from the beginning of January to the end of March totaled EUR 59.9 billion, while imports were worth EUR 59 billion, the state-run statistics agency said.

Poland’s largest export markets during this period were Germany, the Czech Republic and Britain, while Germany, China and Russia were the country’s largest import markets.

Poland in mid-March temporarily closed its borders to non-residents in a move to curb the spread of the coronavirus and has extended the restriction four times since then.

The country’s borders stay open to the movement of goods.

Poland ended last year with a foreign trade surplus of EUR 1.8 billion, according to the Central Statistical Office.

The country’s exports totaled EUR 235.8 billion in 2019 as a whole, while imports were worth EUR 234 billion.
