New Delhi: Exports rose an annual 0.8 percent in January and imports for the month rose 6 percent, leaving a trade deficit of USD 20 billion, a senior trade ministry official said on Wednesday.

Exports between April and January fell 4.9 percent to USD 239.7 billion.

Exports have fallen since last year as demand slowed from major sales destinations, adding to the country's economic gloom and heightening worries about its trade and current account deficits.
