During August 2012, the performance of some sectors with regard to exports including engineering which stood at $ 4.6 billion, petroleum products stood at $ 4.0 billion, gems and jewellery at $ 3.4 billion), drugs and pharmaceuticals at $ 1.2 billion, Readymade Garments at $ 0.9 billion.

Imports during August 2012, performance of some of the sectors are crude petroleum stood at $ 12.8 billion, gold and silver at $ 2.6 billion, electronic goods at $ 2.62 billion.

The downtrend in export may be due sagging global economy and weak demand from euro zone and the US affected the export sentiment, widening the trade deficit.

If a country's export value is more than import, this negative balance is called trade deficit.
