Romania’s trade deficit widened to EUR2.83 billion in the first six months of 2014, up 13 percent from EUR 2.53 billion a year earlier, the country’s statistics institute INS said Monday. Exports grew by 7,6 percent to EUR 25.5 billion, while imports registered an 8 percent growth to EUR 2.8 billion.
