External debts for exports of goods amounted to USD4,994 million as of September 30, 2020, showing a quarterly decrease of USD670 million and USD3,028 million compared to the same period of 2019, mainly due to the payments made by the "Manufacture of Foodstuffs" sector: around USD305 million on a quarterly basis, and USD2,140 million y.o.y.
