Germany's trade surplus narrowed slightly in January, as imports grew faster than exports, official data showed on Tuesday.
In seasonally adjusted terms, Germany exported goods worth 94.5 billion euros ($131 billion) in January, up from 92.5 billion euros in December, the federal statistics office Destatis said in a statement.
Imports rose more strongly, to 77.3 billion euros from 74.2 billion euros.
That meant the seasonally adjusted trade surplus -- the balance between imports and exports -- decreased.
