SINGAPORE, Jan 17 (Reuters) - Singapore's December non-oil domestic exports (NODX) rose 18.4% from a year earlier, official data showed on Monday, mainly due to stronger non-electronics exports, while electronics also grew.
The rise followed a decade record surge of 24.2% in November.
Economists had expected a 13.8% increase, according to the median of 9 estimates.
On a seasonally adjusted month-on-month basis, exports rose 3.7% in December, extending the prior month's 1.0% expansion, Enterprise Singapore said in a statement.
Economists had forecast a 1.4% rise.
