Exports of computers, electronics and components rose by 40% in the period and continue to increase in the next months as businesses have successfully expanding markets and boosting exports to regional countries including the Republic of Korea, Canada, China, Taiwan and Russia and maintaining growth in traditional markets such as the US, Japan and China.
