The volume of retail trade in Romania advanced 1.4 percent in February 2014 from January 2014. A higher rise in the European Union in similar terms was recorded only by Malta (1.9 percent), according to data released on Thursday by the EU’s statistical office Eurostat. In February 2014 compared with January 2014, the seasonally adjusted volume of retail trade rose by 0.4 percent in the euro area (EA18) – Belgium, Germany, Estonia, Ireland, Greece, Spain, France, Italy, Cyprus, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Slovenia, Slovakia and Finland – and by 0.5 percent in the EU28 – Belgium, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Ireland, Greece, Spain, France, Croatia, Italy, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Hungary, Malta, the Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Finland, Sweden and the United Kingdom, according to the same estimates.
The 0.4 percent increase in the volume of retail trade in the euro area in February 2014, compared with January 2014, is due to rises of 0.8 percent for the non-food sector and of 0.3 percent for food, drinks and tobacco, while automotive fuel fell by 0.8 percent.
