Spanish term or phrase: aportan a este valor
Source text:

El comercio exterior en la región totalizo 99,368.1 millones de dólares en 2015, registrando una tasa de variación anual del 2.5%; las exportaciones aportan a este valor 12.6 millones de dólares y las importaciones, 56.6 millones de dólares.

"... exports contributed US$ 12.6 million to this amount/value, while imports contributed US$ 56.6 million."

Any suggestion to improve my translation.

The idea here is that both "12.6 million" and "56.6 million" are part of the 99,368.1 million.
