Export orders reached $40.35 billion, a 13 percent rise from the same month last year, Taiwan Today reported, citing Lin Lee-jen, the ministry’s statistics chief.

The new data also marked the 11th consecutive month of growth in the country's economy, the paper said, reporting a total of $223.63 billion exports in the first half of the year, up 11.2 percent from the same period in 2016.

"According to Lin, the fast-paced global rollout of new laptops and tablets produced greater demand for the country’s ICT offerings.

A similar trend in handheld devices and large display panels was responsible for the equally robust performance of electronics and optical devices, which chalked up its sixth straight month of growth in June," said the report.

Optical devices, chemicals, machinery, plastics and related products, basic metals, ICT, and electronics were the major exported products in June, it said.
