With 14.3% growth in the first four months of this year, the Andalusían agri-food sector has become the driving force behind the regional economy in terms of goods sold abroad. The agri-food sector is the star exporter in the Andalusian economy. According to data from Extenda, the Andalusian Export, and Foreign Investment agency, it has broken a new record in the first four months of 2022 with sales of almost €5.5 billion.
The figures highlight the importance of this sector for Andalucía, and it is growing in every province in the region. Exports are also diversifying to different destinations; sales to the African continent have doubled in the past year, especially to Tunisia and Morocco, and there have been major increases in exports to key markets such as the USA, with a rise of 21%, the Philippines (43%) and Japan (15.5%).
