Provisional imports for the month of April 2014 finds the value of goods imported was $363.1 million.
While exports came in at a lesser figure of $123.5 million, in an economy it is preferred to have more exports than imports.
Notable is the previous month, we had both decreasing, with imports lower by $4.7 million and exports by $7.8 million.
Thus a deficit of $239.6 million in April compared to the previous month of $270.9 million in March.
