Latest data released by Destatis - 8 October 2021

Slight delay in the release by the source. In seasonally adjusted terms, exports were seen down 1.2% on the month while imports grew by 3.5% on the month, leading to the smaller trade surplus seen in August.

But even so, exports were still 0.5% higher and imports 9.9% higher than February 2020 levels i.e. the month before the pandemic struck in Germany.
