Regional organizations are involved in foreign trade with 115 countries of the world. Their products are supplied to the markets of 82 countries, and backwards we import products from 101 countries.

The export geography of our region has expanded into 11 new markets - Albania, Myanmar, Jordan, Tunisia, Kuwait, Guatemala, Lebanon, Nicaragua, Reunion (France), Ecuador.
