New Delhi: India's December exports rose an annual 6.7 percent to Rs 2,500 crore, while imports for the month rose 19.8 percent to Rs 3,780 billion, leaving a trade deficit of Rs 1,270 billion, the government said on Wednesday.
Exports between April-December rose 25.8 percent to Rs 21,760 billion. Oil imports for the month rose 11.2 percent to Rs 1,030 billion. Figures are rounded off.
Indian exporters enjoyed record growth last fiscal year, but have struggled in recent months in the face of economic turbulence in the European Union, which is India's biggest trade partner.
