The foreign trade turnover of the Ufa enterprises made 1152 million US dollars in 2012. The export volume was 712 million dollars, Albina Yusupova the deputy head of city administration informed at the meeting in Ufa on Wednesday. The positive trade balance remains.

“The considerable share — almost 66 % in commodity structure of export was occupied by machine-building production,” Albina Yusupova said.

Earlier statistically petrochemical production prevailed in the export. Structural changes are of procedural type only, as they are caused «by change in the competence of customs bodies on registration of fuel and energy goods in connection with the beginning of functioning of the Customs Union», the deputy mayor explained.
