On the other hand, imports, although in a smaller volume, of US$ 1.982 billion, increased 35.6% in comparison to the averages of the first week of June.

For the whole year, the accumulated surplus reaches US$ 16.775 billion, with a reduction in 2.81% in comparison to the same period last year, result of a stronger increase in imports.
