- A Reuters poll of economists had estimated that non-oil
exports in September would fall a median 2.8 percent from a year
earlier but rise 2.6 percent month-on-month.
- Singapore's non-oil exports tend to be unpredictable
because a significant portion involves pharmaceuticals and oil
rigs that can vary sharply from month to month.
