This resource-rich country is experiencing an export boom due to high commodity prices, which is helping its economy recover from the effects of the pandemic.

Exports increased 27.91% year-on-year, slower than August’s 30.15%, while imports increased 31.48% year-on-year, compared to 32.81% in August.
