During the period January to September 2012, polished imports decreased by 26 percent to $3.08 billion. Israel net polished exports, representing the excess of exports over imports, fell 24 percent to $1.26 billion.
Rough imports dropped 25 percent to $2.65 billion and rough imports declined 31 percent to $2.07 billion. Net rough imports, representing imports less exports, increased 8 percent to $578 million.
Israel’s net diamond account, which is total polished and rough exports less total imports, dropped 40 percent to $679 million during the period.
