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 export orders in July rose 6.9% compared with the same month in 2019 when measured in NT dollars.
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 total exports contracted 3.8% year on year in June to US$27.13 billion compared to the same month in 2019 while total imports fell 8.6% from a year earlier to US$22.29 billion.
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.
