Singapore’s exports grew by a better-than-expected 10 percent in March, beating the forecasts of private sector economists.

Growth in non-oil domestic exports was driven by exports in the non-electronic sector, which expanded 18.3 percent, led by chemicals, compared to March last year.

But electronic exports were surprisingly weak, given that the Government was upbeat about the manufacturing sector in its first quarter economic report.

Electronic exports fell 12.8 percent, mostly due to disk drive exports, which plunged 57.2 per- cent, and integrated circuits, which fell 50.7 per cent.

The Japan crisis also seemed to have had an impact on exports.

Singapore's electronic exports to Japan fell 28 percent in March, compared to the 6.7 percent growth in February.
