JAKARTA  – Indonesia booked a surprisingly large trade surplus of $3.46 billion in June, as exports and imports plunged more than expected, data from the statistics bureau showed on Monday.

A Reuters poll of economists had expected a surplus of $1.35 billion last month. The country recorded a surplus of around $440 million in May.


Exports slumped 21.18 percent on a yearly basis to $20.61 billion in June, deeper than the 18.85-percent fall expected in the poll.


Imports were down 18.35 percent on a yearly basis to $17.15 billion, compared with the poll’s forecast of 7.75 percent contraction.
