The export earnings from industrial exports edged up 3.7 percent YoY to US $ 620.5 million, of which apparel exports amounted to US $ 372.5 million, up 13.5 percent YoY. The earnings from rubber product exports reported a 1.7 percent YoY decline to US $ 67.9 million.

The expenditure on imports during the month of July rose to US $ 1.6 billion, from US $ 1.32 billion in the same month of the previous year, led by expenditure increases in all main import categories.

The import expenditure on consumer goods rose 30 percent to US $ 237.4 million. The oil bill in the month of July surged 110 percent YoY to US $ 434.8 million.

The expenditure on importation of investment goods rose 12.8 percent YoY to US $ 347.8 million. Machinery and equipment imports rose 29.7 percent YoY to US $ 191.1 million while moneys spent on building material importation stood at US $ 98.7 million, up 7.5 percent.
