According to raw data, Romanian retail sales rose 11.1 percent in January compared to the first month of last year, the Romanian National Institute of Statistics announced on Wednesday.

Seasonal and calendar effect adjusted, growth was 9.4 percent.

The increase in raw data is due to double-digit growth in all three product types: fuel sales increased by 11.9 percent, non-food sales increased by 11.2 percent, and food, beverages and tobacco sales accelerated by 10.6 percent. (MTI)
