The value of manufactured goods traded tumbled by 36 percent from N4.51tn in the second quarter of 2021 to N2.87tn in the corresponding period of 2022.
This is according to the foreign trade report by the National Bureau of Statistics for the second quarter of the year and its corresponding quarter of 2021, The Punch reports.
Foreign trade statistics measure goods traded between an economic entity and its economic counterparts within a given period.
The fall in the value of traded manufactured goods came as manufacturers continue to grapple with skyrocketing costs and a harsh operating environment.
Exports of manufactured goods also took a downward plunge within the period in review, from 211.67bn recorded in 2021 to N119.53bn in 2022, representing a 43.5 percent decline in 12 months.
