According to data released by International Enterprise (IE) Singapore, the country’s exports declined 0.8% on a yearly basis in July due to a decrease in non-electronics exports. Exports posted a gain of 4.5% year over year in the previous month.

Singapore’s electronic exports increased 2.3% on the year following a 7.6% gain in June. The increase was attributed to a rise in PC, telecommunications equipment and diodes and transistor exports. Non-electronic exports, however, fell by 2.1% following a 3.3% increase in the previous month. The decrease was attributed to a decline in exports of structures for ships and boats, printed matter as well as primary chemicals.

Singapore’s retail sales, meanwhile, rose 6.9% on a yearly basis in June. The increase in retail sales was attributed to a jump in sales of motor vehicles, which posted an increase of 85.2% on the year in June. Retail sales posted a smaller increase of 0.6% compared with the previous month in June. The country’s total retail sales value reached $3.5 billion in June, up from $3.3 billion a year earlier.
