Greece’s trade deficit shrank by 38.6 pct in October this year for a 34.2-pct decline in the trade deficit in the January-October period, the Hellenic Statistical Authority announced on Monday.

The trade deficit fell to 1.438 billion euros in October, down from 2.341 billion euros in October 2009, a decline of 38.6 pct.
