Export Revenues Top $2.8b

Earnings from the export of goods over the first 10 months of the current fiscal year have exceeded 2.8 billion dollars, around 85pc of what was initially targeted, the Ministry of Trade & Industry disclosed last week. Less than 2.5 billion dollars was earned over the same period last fiscal year. The Coffee & Tea Authority announced recently that export records for coffee were broken two months in a row, with 107 million dollars and 114 million dollars earned in March and April, respectively. Likewise, the Ministry of Mines & Petroleum has also publicised that revenue from gold export, which has overtaken coffee for the number one spot, has topped half a billion dollars so far this fiscal year.
