US trade deficit falls to 6-month low of US$49m

2018-5-12

A SURGE in deliveries of commerical aircraft and soyabeans has resulted in the US trade deficit narrowing sharply in March as exports increased to a record high.


According to statistics released by the US Commerce Department the trade gap dropped 15.2 per cent to US$49 billion, the lowest level since September. Revised figures for February showed that the trade gap widened to US$57.7 billion, which was the highest level since October 2008, instead of the previously reported US$57.6 billion.


March's decline ended six straight monthly increases in the trade deficit. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast the trade gap narrowing to US$50 billion in March, according to the Business Times of Singapore.
