The 2017–2018 economic recovery of foreign trade came to an end after its reduction in 2014-2016. In the first four months of 2019, trade turnover was up to the mark of the same period of the previous year, i.e. fuel export slightly increased, export of other goods reduced (-2.4%), import was at the level of the respective period of 2018 (-0.9%). 

Key words: foreign trade, export, import, rate of exchange.
