Exports are up but so are imports, according to the latest trade figures, which show the trade deficit in goods and services widening from 2.2 billion in August to 3.5 billion in September. Exports rose by 0.7 billion on the month, imports by 1.9 billion. In the latest three months, export volumes rose by 2.4%, imports by 3.2%. Both were substantially down, however, by 12.8% and 13.5%, on a year earlier. More details here.
