Despite a strengthening value of Rupiah against the U.S. Dollar and stiff competition from other markets, Bali's non-oil and gas exports increased 24.3% in the first quarter of 2002.
Exports with a value of US$148.9 million were shipped in the first 3 months of the year comprised largely of textiles, clothing, and handicraft items. Clothing and textile products accounted for US$63.526 million of the total, improving 9.8% from the same period in 2001. Also showing a strong performance were wood-based products totaling US$13.85 million, up 13.1% from just a year ago.(BISNIS Indonesia)
