South Korea's exports jumped 20.2 percent last month from a year earlier at the fastest clip in five years on rising oil prices and recovering world trade, government data showed Wednesday.

Outbound shipments came to US$43.2 billion in February, up from $35.9 billion tallied a year earlier, according to the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy.

It is the first time since February 2011 that the nation's exports have posted a double-digit growth for two months in a row.

Imports expanded 23.3 percent on-year to $36 billion in February.

Last month's trade surplus came to $7.2 billion, marking the 61st consecutive month of a surplus. (Yonhap)
