ArmInfo. In Jan-Nov 2016 versus Jan-Nov 2015, the revenues from the trade sector grew by 0.3% (versus 7.1% decline a year before) to 1.9 trillion AMD ($4 bln), including 190.3 bln AMD ($397.7 mln) in November alone, with a 1.6% drop versus Oct 2016.

In November alone, wholesale trade fell by 1.4% to 75.2 bln AMD, retail trade - by 2.4% to 105.5 bln AMD, while the car trade rose by 5% to 9.6 bln AMD.

According to the National Statistical Service of Armenia, in Jan-Nov 2016 versus Jan-Nov 2015 retail trade fell by 2.9% (versus 8.8% decline a year before) to 1 trillion AMD ($2.2 bln).
