Tai­wan ex­port or­ders drop for 9th month

China Daily (Canada) - - BUSINESS -

Tai­wan’s ex­port or­ders dropped for the ninth con­sec­u­tive month year-on-year in De­cem­ber mainly due to weak global eco­nomic ac­tiv­ity and flag­ging com­mod­ity prices, new data showed onWed­nes­day. Ex­port or­ders were val­ued at $38.81 bil­lion in De­cem­ber, down 12.3 per­cent from a year ear­lier and 4.8 per­cent from Novem­ber, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment re­leased by the is­land’s eco­nomic au­thor­ity on its web­site.
