RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s trade surplus experienced an uptick, registering a growth of 27.47 percent to reach $11.66 billion (SR43.73 billion) in September, marking the second consecutive monthly increase, according to a report released by the General Authority for Statistics.

In August, the trade surplus stood at SR34.31 billion, with July and June reporting figures of SR21.8 billion and SR27.21 billion, respectively.

Despite a marginal 0.1 percent decrease compared to August, Saudi Arabia showed resilience in its trade performance for September, with overall merchandise exports amounting to SR103.8 billion.
However, there was a year-on-year decline of 17.1 percent in overall merchandise exports for September, primarily attributed to a reduction in oil exports. This reduction was in alignment with the decision of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, and its allies, known as OPEC+, to curtail oil output, aiming to maintain market stability.
The value of oil exports in September experienced a corresponding 17.1 percent decline, reaching SR83.1 billion compared to the same period in the previous year. 

Despite this decline, the share of oil exports in the total export portfolio increased slightly from 80 percent in September 2022 to 80.1 percent in September 2023.
