Singapore (VNA) – The Enterprise Singapore announced on May 17 that the country’s non-oil domestic exports (NODX) increased in April after three consecutive months of declining, thanks to the higher increase in non-electronic exports over the decrease in electronic exports.

NODX grew by 11.8 percent year-on-year in April, after the 3.2 percent decline in the previous month, surpassing economists’ earlier forecast of 7.3 percent.

The export of non-electronic products rose 19.6 percent while that of electronic goods dropped 6.9 percent.

NODX to the majority of the top markets grew in the month, except Taiwan (China) and the Republic of Korea, Malaysia and Hong Kong (China). The growth was led by China, the EU and the US.
