(RTTNews) - Switzerland's foreign trade surplus increased in the first quarter on recovering exports, data from the Federal Customs Administration showed on Thursday.

In real terms, exports rebounded 0.6 percent, following a 0.5 percent drop a quarter ago. At the same time, the decline in imports softened to 0.2 percent from 0.7 percent.
