JAKARTA -- Indonesia posted this year's record high in exports, selling US$11.88 billion of goods in October, amid falling demand caused by the global economic downturn, the Central Statistics Agency (BPS) announced.
"It was the second time exports surpassed US$10 billion," BPS head Rusman Heriawan told a press conference. Exports in October rose by 10.12 percent from a year earlier, and 20.72 percent from the previous month.
