Singapore's non-oil domestic exports (Nodx) expanded by 15.5 percent in May. This extended the 11.8 percent growth last month.
The growth was spurred by an increase in non-electronic exports which outweighed the decline in electronics, according to a press release by Enterprise Singapore on Monday, June 18.
Non-oil exports to the country's top markets grew as a whole in May 2018, led bythe European Union, the United States and Japan.
At the same time, non-oil re-exports also increased by 4 percent in May, after a 8.2 percent increase in April. Both electronic and non-electronic re-exports rose.
Total trade rose over the year in May, supported by both export and import growth.
