Meanwhile, the decline in oil and gas exports was due to the decline in oil export of 3.60 percent to US $ 115.6 million and crude oil exports fell 39.05 percent to US $ 281.2 million.
"Cumulatively, the value of Indonesian exports from January to April 2018 reached US $ 58.74 billion, an increase of 8.77 percent compared to the same period in 2017," he said.
