Taiwan Export Growth At 4-month High

Taiwan's exports grew at the fastest pace in four months during October, but imports continued to outpace that, figures from the finance ministry showed on Wednesday.

Merchandise exports grew 7.3 percent year-on-year following a 2.6 percent rise in September. The pace of growth in exports was the fastest since June, when it was 9.4 percent.

Imports jumped 17.6 percent, which was the fastest since July.

The trade surplus decreased to $3.36 billion from $5.26 billion in the same month last year.
