It was followed by the EU with $31.1 billion, China with $27.8 billion, ASEAN with $19.4 billion, Japan with $15.1 billion and South Korea with $14.5 billion.
 
In the first nine months of this year, the country’s export turnover reached $194.3 billion, up 8.2 per cent over the same period last year, meanwhile, the import turnover is estimated at $188.42 billion, up 8.9 per cent – resulting in a trade surplus of nearly $6 billion.

It was followed by the South Korean market with $35.4 billion, up 1 per cent, ASEAN market reached $24.1 billion, up 3.8 per cent, and Japan reached $14.1 billion, up 1.8 per cent.
