According to separate data from the Ministry of Finance, in the year to November the country’s exports ascended 16.2%, surpassing a 14.6% revenue anticipated by experts in a Reuters survey and speeding up from the previous month's 14% soar, led by growing sales to China as well as other Asian countries.
