Singapore’s non-oil domestic exports posted a surprising monthly rise in April, total trade

Singapore’s non-oil domestic exports in April grew 2.7% month-on-month, a surprising rise compared to the 3% contraction expected by economists polled by Reuters.

On a yearly basis, non-oil domestic exports fell 9.8%, more than economists’ forecasts of 9.4%.

This is mainly due to a decrease in exports to China, Taiwan and Malaysia, although exports to the United States, the European Union and South Korea rose.

Singapore’s total trade fell to S$100.3 billion in April, down 18.8% year-on-year and extending the 8.6% decline in March.

Compared to April 2022, total exports decreased by 18.1% and total imports contracted by 19.5%.
