Singapore's core exports rise due to gold, chemicals

Global trade is robust but boost from consumer electronics petering out

SINGAPORE (Nikkei Markets) -- Singapore's key exports rose a better-than-expected 9.1% in November from a year ago, with the biggest lift coming from industries such as gold and chemicals as the city-state's economic recovery continued to broaden beyond the key electronics sector.

Non-oil domestic exports, or NODX, to China performed strongly once again, rising 27.5% from a year ago following October's surge of 53.3%, trade agency International Enterprise Singapore said on Monday.
