Taiwan's export orders in April 2020 increased 2.3% to US$38.53 billion from the same month in 2019, according to a report by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, although, when measured in New Taiwan dollars, given the local currency's appreciation, the report said export orders were approximately NT$1,159.2 billion, which was down 0.3% year-on-year.
Taiwan's exports in the month of April shrank 1.3% year-on-year to US$25.24 billion, according to the Ministry of Finance (MOF).
Taiwan's exports fell 7.6% year-on-year (yoy) in January 2020, breaking a two-month rising streak, according to figures released by the Ministry of Finance (MOF). The drop can be attributed to a reduced number of working days due to the long Lunar New Year holiday that fell in January this year. Imports for January were down 17.7% from a year earlier.
