Spagna, nei 9 mesi la scarpa scivola (-0,7%). Cresce l’import

Spanish footwear exports between January and September of 2019 remained stable. The values are very similar to those recorded during the same period of the previous year. In detail, revenue from foreign sales was of almost 2.1 billion euro (-0.7%), while volume remained the same at 122.6 million pairs (-0.1%). So, it doesn’t fall substantially, but the trend for the 9 months in question isn’t positive.
