Algeria lost about $6 billion between January and June 2013 as its hydrocarbon exports fell by 14.31 percent to $32.14 billion compared to $37.50 billion, the Algeria Bank new report finds.

Algeriaís commodity exports continued to rise by 20 percent while exports out of hydrocarbons structural weakness had a negative impact on trade balance in 2013ís first semester.

According to the same report, services balance had a $3.7 billion deficit.

Commodity imports are on the rise while hydrocarbons exports volume are going down and deficit is increasing.

The report says official exchange reserves accumulation shows Algeriaís solid foreign financial situation. Exchange reserves except gold reached $190.66 billion in the end of December 2012. That represents more than three years of goods and services importing.

The Algeria Bank stresses the importance of careful running of official exchange reserves, saying investments safety is a priority.

Exchange reserves running led to 1.93 percent income. The first semester seems affected by main hard currencies unstable exchange rate which hits some emerging and developing economies.

The Public Treasuryís financial savings went up by $288.58 billion, said the report.
