Greek exports' growth may have surpassed 7.5 pct last year, up from initial estimates for a growth of more than 5.0 pct, following a surge of exports by around 40 pct in November, the national exporters’ association said on Tuesday.

In a review based on figures published by the Hellenic Statistical Authority, the association said Greek exports grew 39.8 pct last November, compared with the same month in 2009, surpassing the 24.1 pct growth rate of October and noted that Greek exports were up 7.5 pct in the January-November period totaling 14.206 billion euros.

The association said it expects exports to grow by more than 7.5 pct for the whole year to more than 15 billion euros. Greek imports fell 21.4 pct in the same period to 35.326 billion euros.

Chistina Sakellaridi, president of the Association, commenting on the figures said the global real economy offered a strong vote of confidence to Greek products and noted that Greek exporting enterprises showed that Greek economic competitiveness was not a legend but a reality, sending a message of optimism.
