JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia’s statistics bureau on Monday revised up its figures for March’s exports and trade surplus, but revised down its imports calculation for the month.
The March trade surplus was amended to $1.39 billion, as opposed to the $1.23 billion the bureau reported a month ago.
Exports from Indonesia were worth $14.68 billion in March, up from the initial report of $14.59 billion. Imports for last month were revised to $13.29 billion from $13.36 billion.
Southeast Asia’s largest economy posted a $1.24 billion trade surplus in April, the bureau said earlier on Monday.
Indonesia has had a trade surplus for every month since the start of 2016.
