Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Indonesia's trade surplus rose 2.5 percent in March to 3.75 billion dollars as exports and imports bounced back, Central Bureau of Statistics head Rusman Heriawan said Tuesday.

Exports in March reached 9.19 billion dollars, up from 8.32 billion dollars the previous month, Heriawan said. Imports increased to 5.44 billion dollars from 4.66 billion dollars in February.

"Exports and imports returned to normal in March, with the export level in the month the second largest (monthly figure) ever," Heriawan was quoted by AFP as saying.

Exports hit an all-time high of 9.5 billion dollars in December before falling in the following months.

Both exports and imports were effected in February by heavy flooding in Jakarta and surrounding areas which disrupted the flow of goods from the main port in the capital.

Indonesia's trade surplus for February was 3.66 billion dollars.

A trade surplus is viewed as positive for economic growth.

Economic Minister Boediono said this month that he expected to see economic growth at 6.3 percent this year, a "fairly substantial pickup" from last year's 5.5 percent. (*)
