October 20, 2011

Oct. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Swiss exports rebounded in September from a slump in the previous month amid signs the franc’s strength is curbing economic growth.

Exports, adjusted for inflation and seasonal swings, jumped 3.4 percent from August, when they fell a revised 6.9 percent, the Federal Customs Office in Bern said in an e-mailed statement today. Imports rose 1.3 percent from August, when they slipped a revised 0.3 percent, and the trade surplus widened to 1.85 billion francs ($2 billion).
