    “Both imports and exports were better than market forecasts (Exports +11.5%/yr vs +10% f/c and imports –7.6%/yr vs –10.1% f/c). While a bounce was expected following the Feb holidays and on base effects, the beat on exports suggest the global economy is not slowing as fast as many were predicting while the greater improvement in imports suggest internal demand is firm. In annual terms, coal imports were up 15%, iron ore 6%, copper 3%, crude +21%.”
