Czech exports will increase year on year in the spring of 2021.
However, the low base effect will play a significant role: in April
2020, the volume of exports fell by 38% and in May by almost 29%.
This is stated in the Export Index published by Raiffeisenbank and
the Association of Exporters. The risk for worse-than-expected
developments is the growing complications in supply chains,
exacerbated by the unfavourable domestic epidemic situation.
Another threat may be considerations about the closure of the
Czech-Polish border or growing problems with maritime transport.
