ULAN BATOR, Feb. 19 (Xinhua) -- Mongolia's foreign trade turnover increased by 27.8 percent from a year earlier to about 2.3 billion U.S. dollars in January, the authorities said Monday.

Due to a significant increase in the exports of mining products such as coal and copper concentrate, Mongolia's trade surplus hit 388.9 million dollars, said the National Statistics Office.

Meanwhile, mining products accounted for about 91 percent of the mineral-rich country's total exports in January.
