FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - Swiss trade surplus has increased to 1.89 billion Swiss francs in November, from 1.40 billion in October, due to a sharp increase on exports that outweighed a milder increase on imports, according to data released by the Swiss customs office.

The main reason behind this historically high trade surplus has been the 6.9% increase in exports, reaching 18.42 billion, while imports increased a mere 0.9%.

Seasonally adjusted, exports grew 7.1% while imports rose 1.0%.
