Czech exports expected to reach record 4.2 trillion crowns in 2017

Czech exports in 2017 reached a record level of 4.2 trillion crowns, up 5.0 percent on the results in the previous year. The figure was given Thursday by the Czech Exporters’ Association which was hosting a conference together with Raiffeisen Bank. Participants said that last year’s figure is unlikely to be beaten this year because of the ever strengthening crown and shortages of workers and spare capacity across Czech industry and services.
