Indonesia’s export rises in August on higher commodity prices


Shipment of Indonesian products overseas increased in August amid rising price of global oil and other commodities. National statistics bureau announced on Friday that Indonesia’s export grew 19.24 percent to 15.21 billion U.S. dollars in August from a year ago.
Head of the bureau Kecuk Suhariyanto disclosed that the rising global oil prices followed by hike on price and demand of commodities had spurred increase of Indonesia’s exported products of oil and gas, and horticultural and natural resources commodities.
“The hike of export was contributed by the hike in oil and gas, and non-oil and gas exportation,” he told a press conference at the bureau headquarters.—Xinhua
