YANGON, April 7 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar exported products worth over 16.57 billion U.S. dollars in the 2022-23 fiscal year, up 6.9 percent from over 15.49 billion dollars a year earlier, data from the Ministry of Commerce showed on Friday.

The Southeast Asian country shipped goods worth over 10.48 billion dollars via sea route, while it exported products worth 6.08 billion dollars through land borders, according to the ministry's figures.

The export growth between April 1 last year and March 31 this year was led by the rising shipment of manufacturing goods and animal products, it said.

Myanmar exported manufacturing goods worth more than 10.9 billion dollars last fiscal year, which became the largest export item during the period, the ministry's figures showed.

The country exported those goods to countries including China, Thailand, Bangladesh and India, according to the ministry.

Myanmar mainly exports agricultural, animal and marine products, minerals, forest products and manufacturing goods among others to its foreign trade partners.
