European April Exports Rose on China, Defying Strong Euro

European exports rose in April on greater demand from the U.S. and China, shrugging off the effects of a stronger euro.

Exports from the economy of the 17 nations that use the euro rose a seasonally adjusted 0.6 percent from March, when they increased by the same amount, the European Union’s statistics office in Luxembourg said today. Euro-region construction output rose 0.7 percent from the previous month, when it declined 0.1 percent, a separate report showed.
