Taiwan’s exports were US$24.31 billion in January, up 0.1 percent from a year earlier after seasonal adjustment, United Daily News reported Tuesday, citing customs data. The slight increase was mainly affected by weakness in mainland China and Southeast Asia. Exports to China and Hong Kong fell 10.3 percent year on year while those to the United States rose 4.6 percent. The government expects first-quarter exports to grow 0.3 percent from a year earlier, the report said.
