Imports up by 19%

by Janhavi Behere

Exports rose by 4.4 per cent to USD 23.6 billion in June 2017, as per merchandise trade data released by the ministry of commerce. The growth in June is lower than the 7.2 per cent growth recorded in May 2017. POL exports rose by just 3.6 per cent during the month, significantly lower than the double-digit growth achieved since December 2016.

India’s imports rose up by 19 per cent to USD 36.5 billion in June 2017 on the back of a 21.2 per cent rise in non-POL imports. A rise in imports of gold (103 per cent) and electronic goods (24.2 per cent) aided growth. POL imports rose by 12.1 per cent during the month. Trade deficit for the month widened to USD 13 billion from USD 8.1 billion in June 2016.

During Q1 of FY18, exports rose by 10.6 per cent, while imports registered a 32.8 per cent growth.
