The most notable decreases for 2017 were observed in three specific categories including ‘Machinery and Transport Equipment’, ‘Other Manufactures’ and ‘Food and Live Animals’, which fell by $113.7 million altogether. ‘Machinery and Transport Equipment’ recorded the most significant drop of the three, which declined steeply by $83.2 million. ‘Other Manufactures’ went down by $17.2 million, while imports of ‘Food and Live Animals’ declined by $13.3 million.

On the other hand, imports of ‘Mineral Fuels and Lubricants’ recorded a considerable increase growing by $28.7 million from $187 million in 2016 to $215 million in 2017 due to higher world market prices for fuel.
