South Korea's exports for the first 20 days of September have increased 22.nine percent on-year.
According to the Korea Customs Service on Thursday, the country's outbound shipments totaled more than 36 billion U.S. dollars during that period.
The rise is due to high demand for semiconductors, metals and cars.
Demand for petroleum products was also high with a 95 percent increase compared to the previous year.
Exports to countries like Taiwan and the U.S. saw a sharp increase, jumping roughly 53 and 25 percent respectively.
Full data for this month will be released on October first.
