The overall dynamics of exports of the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District decreased due to the pandemic and a difficult market environment. However, the indicators in the Far East turned out to be better than the average for Russia.

The Eastern Center for State Planning in its message provides data that the volume of exports of the Far Eastern regions in value terms decreased by 19%, while in Russia the decline was 22,3%. At the same time, all market participants had to face the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic - a general slowdown in the global economy, closure of borders, as well as instability in the oil and gas market.

The main drop was due to the export losses of the raw materials sector of the Sakhalin Region, which accounts for 48% of the total export volume of the Far Eastern Federal District. At the same time, in some regions there was an increase in the indicator, including a significant one - in the Trans-Baikal Territory (183,3%), the Amur Region (159,4%), and the Jewish Autonomous Region (150%). However, the total share of regions with positive dynamics is approximately one fifth of the total export volume of the Far Eastern Federal District.
