Romania was among the countries with the highest increases in the total retail trade volume in September, growing by 9.7 percent compared with the same month of 2015, just behind Luxembourg (+15.2 percent), and followed by Poland (+8.6 percent), while decreases were observed in Belgium (-3.2 percent), Germany (-0.4 percent) and Slovenia (-0.1 percent).

The 1.1 percent increase in the volume of retail trade in the euro area in September 2016, compared with September 2015, is due to rises of 1.8 percent for “Food, drinks and tobacco”, of 1.5 percent for automotive fuel and of 0.4 percent for non-food products.

Overall, the volume of retail trade went down by 0.2 percent in both euro area and EU28 in September compared with August.

The 0.2 percent decrease in the volume of retail trade in the euro area in September is due to falls of one percent for non-food products and of 0.3 percent for automotive fuel, while “Food, drinks and tobacco” grew by 0.6 percent. In the EU28, the 0.2 percent decrease in the volume of retail trade is due to a fall of 0.7 percent for non-food products, while automotive fuel remained stable and “Food, drinks and tobacco” grew by 0.5 percent.
