CzechTrade: Exports up 1.1%, increased interest in IT

In the first two months of 2021, exports grew 1.1% year on year. CzechTrade recorded the highest interest in exports into EU countries, mainly to Germany, Austria, and Poland. Growth was registered primarily in the export of IT technologies. In the first quarter of 2021, the company's foreign agencies processed 609 individual services for 391 Czech clients. Year on year, it was more than twice the service volume. The Sourcing Day Tschechien event, during which German companies request supplies from Czech exporters, will take place at the turn of June and July 2021 online due to the pandemic. This year's number of companies requesting Czech suppliers has almost tripled year on year. In the coming month, Sourcing Days will also occur with partners from Austria, Spain, and Colombia.
