SEAToday.com, Jakarta - Indonesia's Central Statistics Bureau (BPS) announced on Monday (4/22) that the country's trade surplus reached 4.47 billion US dollars in March 2024. This figure represents an increase compared to both the previous month and the same period last year (year-on-year).

 

According to Amalia Adininggar Widyasanti, Acting Head of BPS, the surplus was primarily driven by the non-oil and gas sector, which recorded a surplus of 6.51 billion US dollars. Meanwhile, the oil and gas sector experienced a deficit of 2.04 billion US dollars.

 

Amalia further explained that the United States, India, and the Philippines were the top contributors to Indonesia's trade surplus. Conversely, Thailand, Brazil, and Australia were the countries with the deepest deficits.
