[SINGAPORE] Singapore's non-oil domestic exports probably grew in November from a year earlier, when sales of pharmaceuticals were poor, with the comparison against a low base helping shipments recover from October's contraction.

The median forecast in a Reuters poll of 10 economists was for a 3.7 per cent rise in exports in November from a year earlier. In October, there was a 1.5 per cent annual contraction.

In November 2013, non-oil domestic exports tumbled nearly 9 per cent as pharmaceuticals exports almost halved from a year earlier.

On a month-on-month and seasonally adjusted basis, exports in November were forecast to have risen 0.2 per cent, the poll showed. In October, overseas shipments rose a seasonally adjusted 1.1 per cent from the previous month.
