TAIPEI -- Sales at Taiwan's 19 largest information technology companies rose 13.5% in July from a year earlier, the largest monthly gain this year, suggesting hardly any impact from the U.S.-China trade war.

Combined sales totaled 963.1 billion New Taiwan dollars ($31.2 billion), with 13 of the 19 companies reporting higher revenue. That's the fifth straight month of increased sales, and an improvement on 4% growth in June.
