US Trade Deficit Rises to $43.5 Billion in September

WASHINGTON Ė The United Statesí trade deficit rose to $43.5 billion in September, up $700 million from the previous month, the Commerce Department said Friday.

The deficit widened even though exports of industrial supplies and materials rose to $38.4 billion, their highest level since December 2014.

The department also upwardly revised the August trade deficit to $42.8 billion.

Total US exports came in at $196.8 billion in September, up $2.1 billion from August, while imports were valued at $240.3 billion, an increase of $2.8 billion from the previous month.

The goods deficit rose by $600 million to $65.4 billion in September, while the USís traditional services surplus fell by $200 million to $21.9 billion.

The USís goods and services deficit has climbed by $34.5 billion so far in 2017, up 9.3 percent from 2016.

That gap is due to a $93 billion, or 5.6 percent, increase in exports and a $127.5 billion, or 6.3 percent, rise in imports relative to the same nine-month period of last year.
