South Korea's trade surplus widened from a year earlier last month as the growth of its exports outpaced that of imports, the government said Tuesday.

The country's trade surplus reached $4.19 billion in March with outbound shipments coming to $49.76 billion, up 5.2 percent from the same month last year, according to the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy.

Imports gained 3.6 percent on-year to $45.57 billion. (Yonhap)
