The cumulative imports for the fiscal year (April-August) so far have reached 13.49 bcm, 8.1 percent above the volumes recorded in the corresponding period last year.

The cost of imports dropped when compared with August 2018. The figure stands at $0.8 billion while last year’s figure stood at $0.9 billion. The price of imports for the fiscal year reached $3.9 billion, $0.4 billion below the previous fiscal year.
