South Korea's exports fell slightly in June compared with a year earlier, due to high base effect and shorter working days, government data showed Sunday.
Outbound shipments reached US$51.23 billion last month, slipping 0.09 percent from a year ago, according to the data compiled by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy. Imports surged 10.7 percent on-year to $44.91 billion.
South Korea's trade surplus came to $6.32 billion, marking 77 straight months in which the country's exports have exceeded imports, the ministry said. (Yonhap)
